hey guys am looking for a fairly specific desktop case. im looking for a case to fit on a ledge behind my tv so the case will be side on to the room
im looking for a case that has the 5.25" bays on the side panel (panel with a window would be preferable) for easy bluray player access because the front of the case will be hard up against a wall
any ideas or case suggestions welcome
jesse

there is one, its mini itx, has been reviewed on a few sites, can't recall name, look for mini itx case reviews, probably on xbit, anand, toms or tweaktown. If i see it i'll come back.

yeah thats what im looking for but mid to full tower for ATX mobo


What are the dimensions of the space where you want to put the PC?

Do you already have the motherboard? If not, how many expansion slots do you really need?

Do you have a budget?

There are some legacy cases with a similar arrangement; check their web site.
