I've been thinking of building a desktop for sometime now since i got a new house and got space for a 'slim' desktop.
Been looking around for a case but nothing really fits so far...
- smaller than a mini-tower along the size of a ITX.
- Standable on its side. (like the Antec 1480: http://www.antec.com/product.php?id=704876&pid=7)
- ATX PSU (no to TFX, Flex, etc. those are a pain to get hold of)
- Dual-slot full height (intending to fit a mid-range card like the 560 nonGTX or something around the likes)
- mATX motherboard
i'm using a Silverstone ML03 Black Slim HTPC Case in my media build looks alot like that lain-li case lol
not able to sit upright like u want but i'm using it with a SFX type power supply from silverstone 450watt 80+ bronze and the gt430 card i got in it does the job for a low profile card
i just built a mini pc for a mate in a Antec ISK110 VESA Mini-ITX
running on intel board and I3 530 , no dvd drive but usb3 and e-sata in case he wants to use a external setup
no much room though inside (ouchy ... finger....blood ....)
how about using an Antec Minuet 350 Slimline PC Case ? standable but low profile
like you say , needing too fit that 560 in there going push the case size up
