hi everyone whos there.
i am planning on building a home theatre pc.
just a couple of questions.

i am looking for a micro atx power supply,and a decent cpu cooler that is up to the job.

at present i have...
foxconn A6VMX motherboard
amd 64 am2 4400+ cpu
radeon HD4350 graphics card
corsair XMS2 CM2X2048-6400C5 ddr2 800mhz(1.9V) 4gb ram(2x2gb)
LG Super Multi Blue Blu-ray DVD Drive GGC-H20L.

i am trying to find a decent case,but am limited to about 135mm high max
something like this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=300294832367

i need to know what power supply would be sufficient for this project(i know its got to be matx)
and what cpu cooler and heatsink anyone could recomend based on their own experiences of building such a machine.
 
If u looking for flexibility for a HTPC i suggest going for cases that can slot in a standard ATX PSU. One of the most popular choices when i do up rigs is the Silverstone SG-02F and it could easily house a GTX260/HD4870 in single GPU configuration if one gets bitten by the gaming bug :p For those cases go with something like Scythe Shuriken HSF or even stock if you just run stock clocks + undervolt

thanks for the reply,nice case,but as stated before i am limited to hight because of where its going under the tv.
the case you suggested is to high 270 mm (W) x 212 mm (H) x 393 mm (D)
got to be about 130-140mm max!,but the more room the better.

there are a few cheap 300w matx power supplys about,would these be sufficient for the job in mind?.
