So I can't really use newegg, higher prices and less functionality? What's so amazing about micro other than the tower taking up less space?

It is minature thats it, the functionality isn't anything you would miss and I was talking generally. You could build a Q9450 with a 4870x2 mini-itx pc if you wanted, but when you drop down to nano-itx and pico itx because the board is that much smaller they can't fit as many slots or chipsets on. He is under 40 posts he can't pm yet.

I would really like to do the Micro thing, I think the computer's future owners would really like it. I'm just really budget-constricted here, as this person doesn't already have a monitor or an OS (as so many builders do).

Also, I love my Newegg.

I would really like some help putting together a list of optimal parts for a micro build for around $650.

There's a minimum post count for PM? I suppose Bots could PM spam, didn't think about that. Look on my profile and just do the "send email" function.

Nice call on the X-QPACK2. They are pretty nice cases, believe it or not.
