IMO, i think Minicomputers are less reliable... well atleast in my experience with rendering and minor gaming, Crashes alot.

That case is going to have major airflow problems.

It looks like a microwave - sorry, I had to add that.

If you want PCI express: http://msicomputer.co.uk/Products.as...3524&cat_id=77


BTW. that PSU won't be any good.

All micro ATX cases will. To get good air flow, you want a roomy case, with a 120mm fan in the front, at the bottom, and a 120mm fan at the back, at the top.
