Re: Sub $300 M-ATX MB/CPU/MEM/Video Recommendation

Thanks for links. I'll need some time to digest them. ITX is too small as I need room for a TV tuner card that I already have and would like the option of adding a dedicated video card if the need arises. I'd like to keep the cost as low as possible while keeping flexibility high. I tend to repurpo...

I have the ISK 300-65 and it is very small with limited space. It requires laptop optical and hard drives which I have found to be more expensive.

The other case looks to talk regular drives and has much more room to work with.

What is more important to you? Size? Cost?
