I just decided I want to get 2 hard drives. One for Windows 7 and little stuff and one for all my media.(Music-Photos-Videos). But the case I was going to get only comes with 1 hard drive bay. So is there a case that will still be compatible with the mini-itx board but be in the mid or even full size case? I want it to come with a power suppy.

Do you already have the board? if not, if your going with a bigger case, then ditch the mini-ITX and go with a large motherboard to go along with the case. You may have to in fact, I do believe (someone correct me if Im wrong, ive never actualled used a mini itx) that the mounting points are different on a mini-itx then on a micro or full atx board.

Not all full sized ATX cases will take a mini-ITX motherboard, they usually take some combination of E-ATX, ATX, and micro-ATX. ITX motherboards, I believe have different mounting locations from ATX boards, but I could be mistaken.

Do you remember the name of that case?
I also need to find a Full or Mid Tower case for the Mini ITX.

It's a bit hard to find a case that can mount a mini-itx motherboard.
