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

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,
