Mini ATX - Need help!

  son of bof:) 19:14 19 Jun 2003

Hi all,
I'm looking to downsize my PC from a midi ATX tower, to a mini ATX tower (Not micro!!). I'm having a hard time finding good mini ATX cases at the moment.. I've looked on and the usual sites.

My budget is about £60 for the case, and I'm looking for one with front USB/audio/microphone sockets. To give a rough idea of the size I'm looking for, the mini atx tower should have 2x5.25" bays, and 1x3.5" external, and 2x3.5" internal bays.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

£60 WOW do you want gold plated.(lol) if you can get to a computer fair you can get them for between £25 /£35 .
good luck.

Knight, what I'm after really is quality I guess, I know 60 quid isnt much but you should get a fairly decent one for that, keep the help coming plz :>

Are you sure your motherboard will fit?, is it a Mini_ATX motherboard?

have you considered the cooling? I find those small boxes a nightmare with heat problems and Im sure they dont last as long.

I've considered the cooling, and I'll probably be getting a new motherboard to go in with it :>
