I am wanting to mod a Giant PC Case.

The biggest one for a starting point i have found so far is http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-BAY-ATX-FULL-TOWER-SERVER-CO...

Computer case 8.5" x 16.5" x 26.5".

So help me.. Can we find a case taller then 26 inch? I would prefer it had removable sides but i can work with whatever..

(budget is 50-70 since i also have plans to paint and redo parts of whatever case i do find)

I WILL be posting a build-log and many pics when i do get started.

Thanks, AlderonnX

Not really much room in the budget to look for larger cases.
"CAN BE USED AS AN ATX, AT, LPX CASE WITH A LITTLE AMOUNT OF WORK"
Makes you wonder if his defination of a little amount of work is the same as yours.

Yeah, that is gonna take some Modding for sure.

I would have to put a new MoBo Tray and redo the entire back of the case.

And just about as much work to get a decent fan/cooling setup

That's an old AT form factor case back from when ISA slots were all the rage.

Wow ! a fossil . for $ 70.oo max you'll be hard pressed to find a full tower case that meets your needs . I have seen old lian li server cases on craigs list occasionally and they are bigger . with the old formfactor psu opening and missing mobo io maybe you should pass on this one ? . I was in a scrap yard the other day and saw literally piles of old steel and aluminum cases . anywho I digress , good luck :)

you will ... that ones dinged up and the sellers high to think he/she could get that much for it ... keep looking .. I've found older lian li ( ginormous ) aluminum server cases on craigslist for under $ 75.00 .. ebay is a rip .... I have never found anything on ebay that I couldnt find cheaper elsewhere ... happy hunting :)
