    Cooling is pretty dire for the graphics card in the Cubit 3 and 5 cases so go for the SG05 instead. Also the company which made them went bankrupt ages ago so it is pretty hard to get hold of them now.

    If you are looking for small cases check this website out:

    Re: My Mini ITX Gaming Build

    Cor this takes me back to my cubit 3 gaming rig. It's a bit dated now but it was a stormer when I built it. It's possibly my favourite pc that I owned as it was soooo small yet very powerful.

    I got the cubit on ebay from the seller mentioned above. It cost me less than £40 from memory. They are very hard to find, I get people asking to buy mine all the time (I no longer own it )

    Mine was the black version:

    Re: My Mini ITX Gaming Build

    I like the look of the PICO820:

    http://www.icp-epia.co.uk/index.php?...&productId=408

    http://blogs.sun.com/oslab/entry/intel_atom_pico_itx

    It has a 1.6ghz Atom and US15W chipset which has the GMA500 integrated graphics. AFAIK the GMA500 has better video acceleration features than the GMA950.

    It would go nicely with this case:

    http://linitx.com/viewproduct.php?prodid=12275

    I like the look of the eBOX-530 too:

    http://www.icp-epia.co.uk/index.php?...&productId=452

    http://www.axiomtek.com/Download/Spe...530-820-fl.pdf

    I wish that Nvidia had released the pico-ITX Ion prototype as a production model too!!
