Default Cube Lan

So to be completly honest I am sick of carrying my antec 900 to all of my lan parties I go to. So I am deciding to build a Micro ATX computer. I need help with deciding the parts. For the sake of having a budget to go by well say 650,including the case which is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-116-_-Product (99.99). So if anyone could help me out that would be great. Oh and by no means it has to be like the best of the best, just looking for a solid lan pc.

Thanks!

To be honest, I have a friend who has a lanbox, and I recommend against it. Your much better off getting a mid-tower to make it more carry-able then a lanbox style case. micro-ATX boards limit you a lot too. the chipsets are usually halfass versions of what the full boards carry. You have to cut corners on Micro-ATX boards to be blunt.

If I were you I'd consider getting a laptop with a dedicated graphics card instead.

Just get a smaller case that fits your board perfectly instead of having extra space underneath and maybe mod a lian li case with some nice handles from mnpctech.com
