    I need could do with reducing the size of my pc down alot (in a PC75 atm :O). My room next term at uni is going to be tini so space is very limmited.

    I really could do with it being as small as possible, maybie even in a HTPC style case. What are my options?

    It needs to fit Full ATX motherboard, 7800GTX and a Hyper Type-R PSU. I would prefer full ALU but im not too fussed if its not but it has to look nice.

    How about just downsize to a PC7+

    Seems the logical thing to do to me :)

    How much money you got to spend?

    I used to have a PC60(heavily modded), they are nice cases but i kinda fancy somthing a little different.

    Budget wise, upto about £150 i can go more for somthing special tho.

    Trade in the full ATX, get a microATX and a Silverstone Sugo.

    Yeh thats a good option, or a mid range Lascala case.

    You could also consider a ATCS 201 case for that sort of money.

    I would say-

    Antec P150- Quiet, small, simple and quiet.

    Coolermaster Wavemaster- Small, stylish and aluminium.

    Lian Li V1000- A bit big, but as yewen would say it is a great case!

    If your looking for HTPC take a look at the Silverstone LC17, alluminum front but the rest is steel, but it should fit easily withine your buget. An absolutly beutiful case, and the one i'm going to go for on my next upgrade.

    Thanks for the sugestions, Im really looking at the V600 and LC17. Someone from silverstone has said that getting a GTX into the LC17 and i may have to remove the middle hard disk rack. But thats not really an issue as i dont have loads of drives. Im going to wait for more reviews of the V600 before i decide, there may be issues with cirtain big heatsinks not fitting inside the case.
