That case is 17.3" wide though it is as tall as a high end receiver at 6.3".

The hot air exits the case in both the front and rear so it won't cook my
other a/v components.

May I ask if you're going with AMD for a particular reason?

Since I made this PC a dedicated myth box I used this S/Pdif  MB


and this CPU


Obviously not bleeding edge tech but it's got plenty of CPU for recording
two shows at once while watching a third (previously recorded.)

Lian Li make some very nice cases! We're assessing our options -
initially we were going for the Silverstone LC16 (and thus most ATX
boards are options), but my friend would prefer a 'slim' case, where
width is not an issue and the 17" width matches most consumer
audio/visual separates. Thanks for the suggestion though, as we hadn't
seen that case before (UK based).

Current linux support (mostly audio it now seems) for the Asus A8N-VM
CSM and the MSI K8NGM2-FID seems to still be lacking (we need working
SPDIF). Maybe we'll hold off for a little while and see if the audio
support makes it into ALSA and works stably.
