Yes, depending on the model.

Alright. Now, what do you think of this? Intel Core i5-4460, Zotac GeForce GTX 970, Silverstone PS08B (Black) - Possible Gaming Build - battleof3's Saved Part List - PCPartPicker

And I understand it says the case is Micro ATX, but the filter system says it is mITX compatible. Although I'm probably loopy from my lack of tea today and will need to change that AGAIN.

The eVGA 600B is a decent PSU.

That Silverstone is still an mATX case and only slightly smaller than the 200r by a few inches. If you're going to use an mITX board then get an mITX case that is indeed actually smaller otherwise stick with the previous mATX board.

These are some examples of mITX cases.

Wait, now I'm confused with the whole case/board thing. What would be optimal for space and still house my specs comfortably?

And I did consider the 250D. I would LOVE that thing, but it is too pricy for me.

Okay, I found one I could potentially use. Surely it is able to shelter everything with room to spare? It says 14.x inch video card. Cooler Master HAF Stacker 915F Mini ITX Tower Case (HAF-915F-KKN1) - PCPartPicker

mATX boards are basically half sized boards compared to standard ATX. The Silverstone case you linked is made for mATX boards this size. mATX cases are made with only 4 or 5 PCI slots for expansion slots. That makes it easier to visualize compared to the 7-9 PCI slots on mid tower ATX cases.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157547

It says it can support mITX boards because it can.

mITX boards are tiny. Look at how small they are compared to the bigger boards. All 3 cases I previously linked will house the mITX board and parts you linked comfortably. Just know that mITX boards only have one PCI-E slot and that's it. They have limited I/O due to their size. That eVGA Hadron case even comes with a PSU so you wouldn't have to buy that. BUT they will not support that cooler you have linked. You'll need an AIO water cooler or a low profile air cooler.

Most mITX cases are small and portable. That's the whole point of miTX. If you decide you want that Silverstone case instead, just get one of the mATX ASRock boards mentioned previously (the H81 or M97). On that note, if you want the Silverstone case for expansion or upgrades later, might as well get the 200r. The 200r is small enough I can fit under my arm and carry it one armed around. If you're that serious about moving it about I suggest getting yourself a case carrier like I have.

Okay. This helps a TON. I'll revise a bit, and post another link.

One other thing. Could this case use an mATX board, as well? Because I like it quite a bit.
