External housing for Graphics card

I am making my own computer case. I wanted to go with a modular design and have all the components "compartmentalized" (housed in seperate boxes), but as far as I know there wouldnt be a way to connect the graphics card to the mobo. I've tried looking, but does anyone here know of a PCI extension cable or connector?
