    The cables of a non-modular PSU all come out of the same opening, but on a modular PSU you plug them in along the length of the end of the PSU. With a non-modular, you could situate the PSU so that the opening is not obstructed by the GPU, it's impossible to do that with a modular PSU.

    DACs are silly. Perfect solution would be a better case I could fit all my stuff I wanted without wasting space on useless things like opticals or HDD's.

    They are better than having a sound card though

    This. Why exactly are we calling DACs silly? They remove any electrical noise from your computer that you could hear through headphones (or especially high-power studio monitors like mine) and make the sound much clearer. I tried both my motherboard sound outputs as well as Xonar DX... electricity! Then I got the TASCAM US-366... all problems went away.

    Thanks. I think that's mainly due to ITX becoming more popular now with Steamboxes on the horizon. This ITX board doesn't lack any features a fullsized ATX would have. It's arguably better than most ATX boards, though more expensive.

    Apart from extra expansion slots. :>

    DACs are silly (and awesome) because you need to keep them on your desk. I want everything in my pc to be in a same packet.

    given the tablet (assuming its a Cintiq), probably graphic design, there is also a SpacePilot Pro in there, so possible CAD work as well, but a lot of artists use them with blender for making 2d/3d renders

    It's a 24HD Touch if I remember his specs right. For reference, it costs 3000 dollars. If it's the "pen only" non-Touch version, it's "only" 2600 dollars.

    I have the Fiio e17 with a pair of ATH-M50's. Silly is the last word I'd use and the DAC is so small. Really great solution, IMO!

    errr, just wondering, if you have your headphones or speakers connected to you pc, well whats stopping you from strapping a dac to the side of the pc, you know, not on the desk, and the wire pretty much comes close enough from the pc itself.

    think creative here, i like having my audio engine D1 next to me for the fine tuning for volume control and tbh, its an attractive unit on the desk for my use personally.
