Default xbox Pc (continued)

I am making a pc in an xbox(a very good one in gaming). I was looking all yesterday for an mini-itx form factor mobo. Sadly i could not find the right combo of c2d compatibility and onboard connectors(most importantly pci ex16). Also they are way more expensive. Ive decided to switch over to uATX which is leaving me with alot less space, but it has plenty of connecters, is cheaper, and is from newegg. This is what ive got so far.

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131178

Processr (conroe e6600 or e6700) i assume no link is need for that.

GFX card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150220

Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034

Here is my issue. I need a power supply that can support all this but that is extremely small. My best bet (as it seems) is to go with an external brick. i found this http://www.quietpc.com/ie-en-eur/pro...s/hfx-ef28-psu , its a little pricy, and i am not 100 percent sure it will support my gpu, also i will need to buy a 24 pin adapter i guess.

Can anyone help me look for a psu, whether its internal or a brick, the part that can go inside can be no bigger than 3x8(up to 8)x3.5 (WxLxH) in inches.

one of these seems to be the best bet http://techgage.com/article/xg_magnu..._external_psu/ ,cant really find a place to buy,

honestly the idea seems very creative but it doesnt seem like it is worth it you are getting less performance and paying more money. but if you are set on doing this maybe try using a laptop PSU.

I personally wouldnt do it, because of the cooling side of things, theres no way theres gonna be sufficient cooling in a rig like that for gaming. I honestly wouldnt know where to start with it either. You may get more info from some of the custom pc building sites than here.
