    My birthday is in 2 days, and I've been thinking of asking for the parts to upgrade my sig rig to mini-ITX. What would you guys recommend I put together for it? I was thinking of going Ivy Bridge, as it would let me take advantage of all the awesome new 1155 mini-ITX boards coming out, and I'm not sure if there are any decent 1156 mini-ITX boards. But more important, I'm undecided between the Lian-Li TU200A, the Silverstone SG05BB, or the SG07. Now I think the SG07 is butt ugly, but I quite like the 180mm AP fan. I love the TU200A's aesthetics, and the fact that it has a handle, since I figure I'll be moving around a lot. I have worked on an SG05 and think it's grand, it's a good combination of price, parts, aesthetics, and size, but it lacks a handle. If I do get the TU200, I'll probably use one of the Silverstone SFX power supplies with it and an ATX to SFX adapter to save space.

    I'll be using Newegg.com or Tigerdirect.com to supply it.
