How they make this article without a screenshot of the final product is beyond me. Oh well, if you are looking to build something mini then you might have a look at this. Otherwise you are better off checking out what JC posted yesterday.
Small form factor PCs are all the rage. But these days, you have to choose between a tiny, cube-shaped PC with limited expandability or a pizza-box style desktop unit with limited flexibility and performance. We’re not completely satisfied with either option. Don’t get us wrong — we love the dinky cube-shaped powerhouses. Sometimes, though, you just want a little more.
We decided to build a compact form factor system using a Micro-ATX motherboard, but with a bit more flexibility than most mATX-based systems. Although typical mATX motherboards have one AGP slot and three PCI slots, most of the cases offer limited room. For example, you’re often limited to low-profile AGP cards. Suffice it to say that “high performance” and “low profile” are not synonymous.
