Hello pcpartpicking people! I'm trying to build my first pc but I live outside US, so I need to buy a case that weights as little as possible so the shipping isn't too much of a problem.

Currently I have in mind:

i7-5775C (can get one cheap)

AsRock H97 Pro4 micro ATX

EVGA Nex750 psu

SanDisk 240GB SSD

1 TB 7200

Kingston Fury 1x8Gb

R9 390/R9 380 in a couple of months depending on budget

I think that's about it, or at least what I can get cheap on Jet at the moment.thanks for the help :D

2 quick questions, where outside the US and how much are you looking to buy for the case?

Hi! I'm in Costa Rica. I'm looking for something below $50 or so to fit the rest of the budget.

Try the cooler master N200 or the Fractal Design core 1000

Don't buy that psu, it isn't good.

I'd recommend getting a mini itx case instead, something like the Azza Stealth or Cooler Master 130.

Ty! Im searching more and there's not much offer around the microATX size, but with a ITX mobo there's a lot of options. I think I'll get a AsRock H97 mITX/ac instead.

Newegg, Amazon each have free shipping.

I am looking at the Thermaltake core v31 for about $60 right now.

I'm not from inside US, there's no free shipping.
