What is the smallest case on the market that can fit these parts/heat?

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/phenom-ii-overclock-graphics-card,3032.html

I am definitely building this months $500 computer. Toms hardware has done all the work for me and the computer rocks. I am wondering if there is any way i can get a smaller case for it? Maybe even one without space for DVD drives to make it even smaller? I am trying to make the computer as mobile as possible, so if someone knows of a case like this, link it!

Thanks ahead of time,

  1. bump
  2. could i change to a microatx motherboard without spending too much/sacrificing performance?
  3. The motherboard in that $500 build is a dead end part , that can never be upgraded with one of the [ very] soon to be released bulldozer cpu's
    It might be the best $500 build today but its not good value .

    Upgrade the motherboard to a part using a motherboard with a 970 series chipset .

    Or if you simply want a smaller case then there are AM3+ micro ATX motherboards that will run BD processors , albeit without some power features enabled

    any of those fit in a micro atx case

    For something so small I would prefer using one of the Cube kind of Cases
    You can use this mobo

    And still have the upgrade option to BD later on.
