Default Is it possible to build

A gaming rig in a case that portable? I'm in the Navy and can't carry around something so bulky.... I know I'll probably get answers like you shouldn't do that because their is not enough airflow, or something of that nature. I want a desktop over a laptop though. So much more power. ^^ If it is at all possible somebody point me in the right direction. lol

Yea sure, but it may have overheating issues.

There are micro atx cases or desktop ones.

Like this.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...e=&srchInDesc=

Or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...e=&srchInDesc=

Or

http://www.sundialmicro.com/index_1921.html

those are just examples, do some googling for highly portable desktop cases, you will find alot more choices.

The only problem is that some accept different power supply standards, and may not fit all video cards or motherboards.

you could also look at some of these cases (scroll towards the bottom and on the 2nd page)
Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Computer Cases,Computer Cases,MicroATX Desktop

like this one
Newegg.com - Thermaltake LANBOX Lite VF6000BWS Black SECC Japanese steel Gaming Cube Computer Case - Computer Cases

they will support standard atx psus and most gfx cards (if theyre not too huge), but only support micro atx mobos.
