   If you're looking to build a small mini-ITX or micro-ATX based system in all likelihood you will require three compact components including a low-profile CPU cooler, low-profile graphics card (unless you plan on using an intergrated one) and an SFX form factor power supply unit. Of course you can always build one such system in an midi-tower or one of the many cases out there which land right between mini-ITX/micro-ATX cases and midi-towers but if you plan on using a really compact PC case then there's really no way around it. Just over three years ago SFX form factor power supply units had very little to offer consumers (always compared to their full size cousins) but just like most things in the electronics industry today things have changed for the best so you can find some pretty feature-rich and powerful models in the market including the brand new SFX L Power 600W by be quiet!
