Of course, a solid state drive isn't particuarly perturbed by movement. But you do want to get it secured somehow. The last thing you want is it coming loose and knocking into other components (like RAM) if/when the case is moved.

I had no zip-ties to spare, and unless I turn the computer upside down and the SDD comes lose off the cables there's no chance of it hitting the RAM. It's a botch job and I know it. However, it seems fine. For now...
I hope you've learnt your lesson about trying to skimp on the case.
Yep. Too small to work in, poorly ventilated (I want a ceiling fan dammit!), and missing some nice things I would have liked had I known more about cases at the time. I was just really trying to keep it within budget at the time, major regret now.
Are the horizontal cases good? I always liked them because they keep the graphics card the right way up but I think they've fallen majorly out of fashion for years now.
He has a baby size case with two oversized graphics cards. (and horrible wiring)
I don't have two graphics cards. It's just the AMD 6950 2GB card but I deliberately went for the ASUS 3 slot thick card for MAXIMUM cooling. The motherboard should have been designed with the SATA3 ports where the exposed SATA2 ports are though. I blame the motherboard, and small case.
I don't deny the wiring is terrible though!
