So I'm putting together a new LAN rig, and the new Zotac LGA1156 ITX motherboard fits the bill perfectly.

However, ITX power supplies don't seem to get much above 300 watts, and a 5970 needs that much by itself. Anyone know of a case for an ITX motherboard with two expansion ports and compatibility with ATX, or at least, Micro ATX, power supplies?

Right, but is that case big enough to house the 5970?

It won't without some modification: if you cut out the portion below the 1 expansion slot, it could.

But like I said in the post right above yours: it only has one expansion port, and therefore, probably won't hold anything fast for a while. Not until a vendor modifies a 58xx series card for a single slot and either drops a video connection or changes over to multiple HDMI ports (which would work).
