Prodigy unless you can make your part list compatible with a Console-like case, Then Choose the Raven Z2.(RVZ02)

The phenom has problems with gpu ventilation.

The prodigy is an excellent mini itx case but is large for mini-itx.

The Ds cube is also good.

I have (and love) the fractal design core 500 take a look at it.

Also, phanteks evolv itx is basically a shrunk down mid tower.

Thanks guys, was kind of swaying towards the Phenom with a vented side panel to aid GPU cooling. Looked at the Raven didn't like the look, will check out the core 500.

for the "console" style cases the RVZ01 and RVZ02 are good choices. otherwise the Evolv itx and Core 500 are the best large itx boxes and well priced.

You should check out the completed build that guy made in a real brief case. Has a keyboard on the outside and looks like it would scare the TSA half to death.
