Yes, you can fit in full sized cards. I am using the PVR-350 in it and
there are no probs. There is a bit of noise from the PSU in it, and I
could always replace (though it looked smaller than a standard one).
But the hum from it is actually kinda nice, and is white noise that I
can go sleep to. When the tv is on, that drowns oth the noise. It is a
bit of a hassle fitting everything in there, but no biggy. And the
front side USB, Mic, and Speaker is pretty nice (hidden behind a panel).
Give it a shot, I like it.
Just looked over the page for that case, but couldnt tell... do "normal"
sized PCI cards fit in there? I have no problem buying an ultra-tiny
motherboard... hey, theres a thought... anyone here come across a microatx
(or smaller?) motherboard that has a svideo out built in? My concern with a
small case is fitting PCI cards in there so I can have my svideo out.
