Default need suggestions for Mitx htpc build

I have been using an older pivos media player but it is getting really slow and the wifi drops , I have decided to look into a cheap Mitx build but not sure what to get, I used to just use an old PC but that takes up allot of room so the smaller the better

Well the smaller the better and the case should be able to hold a standard PC harddrive

Look at this one

small

The SSD hard drive combo from WD may be usefull to you.

Wanting to put in 3.5 Inch drives limits you. 1 hard drive or 1 optical drive is supported in this case.
I has space fore 2 x 2.5 also.
Needs short Video card and special size PSU.
