Build for lots of moving

In the army, need a solid build for the life of constant moving around. So my main concern is obviously the case size, I found this case which is decently sized, but if you have any other suggestions for smaller parts and a smaller case, I would love to hear it. I already have an SSD and HDD with all my **** on it, so I don't need an OS or more storage. Trying to keep the price around $1500

Looks awesome, but a few questions.

Is the cable extension mod just for making cable management easier? And what does the power supply bracket do?

The cable extensions are to remove any hopes of connection issues (the SF600’s cables are on the short side). If you use an ATX PSU, there will be only a sliver of breathing room for the GPU, so an SFX PSU will give it a bit more room.

The PSU bracket is to make it fit (SFX is smaller than ATX)
