Default microATX PC

ive been thinking about getting a microatx pc for next to my bed, so i can listen to my mp3s and watch video while in bed. i would want this to be as small as possible. here are the parts ive compiled so far:

i still need a psu and a case. can anyone tell me where i can get a TINY case, i only need one cd drive and no floppy drive. if i cant find a good one ill make one for myself, it cant be all that hard. i also need a small screen monitor. id like this to be very cheap, if i cant find a cheap enough one ill just take an old piece of crap from my stepdads office. id like it to be less than 10 inches if possible. the emphasis on this computer is on price, i want it to last a while but be cheap. extreme performance doesnt really matter. im assuming the integrated graphics will work fine to play movies?

hmm yeah thats pretty cool, and thanks for looking, but its a little too big for me. what im really looking for is a 10 inch by 10 inch case, maybe a 5 inch height, because thats all the space a microatx pc really needs.ill probablyn make it myself if i cant find anything good online

that link doesnt work... but i searched for those dimensions in newegg and the cheapest with those dimensions is 165 bucks, too much for me. ive decided now that my focus for this system is different, ill use it as my pc for using aim and doing minor web browsing and stuff, and ill power up my main pc when i want to do anything more. this will be extremely useful to me because during the summer that things like a heater. my room gets way hotter than the rest of the house. with this, i can be online and just shut down my main pc. will i get any lag with this system for those tasks?
