I'm looking to make a $360 Mini ITX build for my dad using new and spare parts. I already have a Corsair CX that I would like to reuse and a 204mm 1660 Ti I would also like to use. Preferably a case where I could use both of those in this new build and also be 360$ USD or less.

The “comment deleted” was mine because I had this build ready except the case was an ATX mid tower and that wouldn’t go well with a mITX build. Anyways, I think this turned out quite nicely.

MicroATX case ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh This is different from what I've seen because it actually has a CPU that's not an APU. I just wish Mini ITX cases weren't $60+

Do you not want that? This is a very good case for its price. The cheapest mITX case is literally like $70. It’s insane. This is a great deal. And the case looks good too. If you really want a mITX case, I’m gonna have to cut down on the quality of the parts to stay under the budget.

I was thinking the exact case as well earlier but i'd just like it to be more portable. Which puts the H200 out of the picture I'm going to see if I can make some changes to it, thanks!

Well, if you want something portable, there's the Cooler Master H100 (you get a carry handle, meshed front and a 200mm fan for $70)

Or if you care about portability, ditch the CX, and get a HTPC/slim style chassis
