Htpc atx vs mini itx
I recently bought a full size ASrock ATX board from Microcenter which is about 2 hours away.. along with an I3 processor and ram for a very good price. They were doing $50 off a mobo if you bought a CPU so the motherboard was only $50. I currently have a huge Fractal Designs case that sits behind my TV for HTPC use but I would like to go to a specialized HTPC case and maybe keep my old computer as a file server since I have about 3tb of space on it.
Problem is I cannot find a good HTPC case that I am happy with for under $100. For $40 on amazon I can get a mini ITX case and a board for $100 and save a lot of room. I could sell or return on my new motherboard and get a return on my money or stick with the AATX format.
I don't care how wide the system is since I have a full shelf to devote to it but the depth is about 21 inches.
What do you guys think?
