Hello,

I'd like to build a compact PC with a mini-ITX motherboard and with enough space to have a regular size PCI card laid down at a 90° angle with a riser.

I like the type of cases used by IBM for their retired Netvista 2800, or those sold by Soekris with their motherboard.

Does someone know where I can find this type of case in Europe preferably under 50€ shipping included?

Thank you.

Exactly :)  Thanks much for the tip. I'll read up on flexible PCI risers to check that there aren't limitations, especially with the telephony card I intend to use.

I'm also wondering how effective these risers are for more powerful graphics cards... let us know what you find? :D

Will do. In the mean time, I have to find a case that will hold a mini-ITX mobo and a PCI card underneath it. Here's the project :)

Interesting... why don't you try fashioning a clear case out of something transparent? I honestly have no experience with building, but hopefully this bump will catch someone's attention :D
