smallest mini itx case that can still fit a dual slot card

CPU's probably a xeon e3 1230 so no overclocking really, video card is probably going to be a 650ti, which I will overclock.
budget under 150$ maybe a little more if its worth it.

  1. What you're looking for doesn't exist. The only thing that I can think of that comes close would be the Fractal Design Node 304.

    Unless you're buying a server, there is ZERO reason to purchase a Xeon, stick with the i5-3470 or i5-3350P.

    Since I'm not looking for any thing specific, something that can fit and cool small dual slot card and 65 watt CPU on a mini itx board in as small a package as possible (note this) for under 150$. 4 cores and 8 threads (i7 specs) for the same price as an i5, is a reason to get a xeon, it might not help in games, but doing virtually anything else it does.

    This is the only thing I can think of that would come close to your requirements: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352027

    As far as the extra threads go - if you're doing tons of CS5 or AutoCAD work, or work with scaling network applications or VMs, things like that then a Xeon would be warranted, I guess. I use an i5-3450 on my work PC and it handles everything I need it to do.

    Probably the only thing that would come close would be the Falcon Northwest Tiki but I highly doubt they'd sell just the case. Which is a shame because they would make a *KILLING* off of that.
