Mini ITX cases?

DrTot

Im looking to buy my first gaming pc, and the hardest part for me is finding a good looking case in my price range. I recently came across the BitFenix Prodigy series and I think the orange model looks amazing. I know mini ITX cases are meant to be portable, but I was going to keep it on/under my desk. Is it worth getting a Mini ITX case just because it looks really cool?

If you like it, go for it. Just make sure it has some adequate airflow. If you have a high end PC, you might want to get a bigger case for more airflow.

The Prodigy is pretty good, but I prefer the Corsair 380D (it's not that bad), Corsair Obsidian 250D, RVZ02, I'm sure Fractal Design has something, Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX is good, oh now I remember, the Fractal Design Node 804, and the Corsair Air 240 is good too.

Ive got a Corsair 250D and its big but its very roomy, very easy to build in. I think it looks great but Im a fan of simplistic monochrome design. Also a big fan on the Enthoo Evolv ITX. My PC stays in place unless I decide I want to take it out to the living room and hook it up to my tv out there for some couch gaming so you dont have to use itx for portable gaming only. I like craming immense power into a tiny space. Do whatever you want, its your money and your computer!

Ok, I think I'm going to go for it, I mean after all I don't need a TON of airflow because I'm not overclocking

I have the orange prodigy M and it looks amazing, airflow is actualy quite good considering how much the parts are crammed together.
