I need help getting a case

So, I have a Optiplex 390 slim tower and I was looking to upgrade the case so Id have more room to put a non low profile GPU in my system.

My motherboard is a om5dcd motherboard so if anyone can tell me which case is compatible with this monitor pls speak up.

Cpu- I5 2400

Gpu- gt 1030 (upgrading to a 1050 soon)

Ram- 16gb (2x8)

HHD- 500gb (plus 1tb of Portable storage)

Power supply- 350 watts ( I think)

Please help asap and thank you!

Pretty sure the motherboard is a Micro ATX form factor. How much are you willing to spend on the case? And in what currency/country?

last I checked, the 390 motherboard is compatible with ATX and micro ATX cases. Get the a nice cheap one and you can upgrade the PSU to a standard ATX PSU.

This is as cheap as I recommend.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

a used case from a local market like FB market or letgo would be fine, or make your own out of that fancy cardboard stuff I hear so much about. I don't recommend a used PSU though.

the H510 is fine, it's not a bad case by any means and it looks cool. If you were interested in using a case that you will move forward to a future PC, it's a good call.
