I have posted elsewhere but this seems like a better place I am building a pc from scratch I have built the pc case and now am looking at parts (on the cheap) i am not sure if i need a case fan my pc case is 24 by 18.3 by 14 and these are the parts:

4GB CF Compact Flash Memory Card
Compact Flash to SATA Converter Adapter
Intel D410PT Desktop Motherboard - Intel Chipset
LiteOn IHAS124-19 24x DVD+/-RW SATA Black - OEM
New Mini ITX PC DC-DC Power Supply Board 120W PSU 12V
Novatech 1GB (1x1GB) DDR2 PC2-5400C4 667MHz Single Channel Kit

finally can anyone provide with sizes for the i/o shield and will my pc parts boot off usb as I will not get the optical drive (being cheap and never use the one in my laptop!)

Being as you want to build a low cost system, and you already have the case, I would suggest a motherboard bundle like click here as it is all assembled and tested as well as being optimised to work together.

You will still need to get a PSU (Power Supply) and DVD drive.

If the USB has the operating system on it, it should (no guarrantees) boot from there.

That there is not sufficient height for a "Full Sized" Graphics Card!

This is literally the smallest pc i can build that it why i have made my own pc case as none on the market are small enough i am looking to build a pc for under 100 pounds and it consist of a passive cooler if you could help with i/o shield size or weather i would need a pc case fan. Finally you could also help me with cheaper parts.

This is not a high performance gaming rig just a simple web browser linux based system
