What exactly are you putting in it? They can get pretty small depending on what you're throwing in there.

Why ATX vice mATX for an HTPC? That's going to make a huge difference in what cases are available, and the extra features on most ATX motherboards can be found on the Gene series of motherboards if you really need them.
