Hi guys, I'm trying to decide what case to get for a HTPC ( for my family's TV Room :P ) And Maybe some light-gaming ( so room for a graphics card might be necessary ).

Any suggestions?

Hey, an HTPC ain't complete unless it has an LCD screen on the front, and it's got space for a mid-range graphics card.

I think that getting both light gaming and even a decent gaming experience is possible today and quiet too.Even with HPTC chassis take a look at few more offerings from Silverstone and Lian-Li  .You may need to really plan this out for budget mini-atx 3 rd party cpu cooler SSD /  HD storage as well as overall graphic card size and expansion cards.& PSU

some folks may also consider a mini-tower as well while others decide on Media center

might as well look at some these as well and let us know what your plans are
