If you're not using a cd-rom, take a look at Morex "Cubid 2699v",
under $100 us.

Size 2.5" high x 11.6" x 10.3"
Has internal 60 w dc-dc power supply and an external ac adapter.
Some vendors will "upgrade" ps to 80 w

Only top cover is removable but it fully exposes the top of the m.b.
The ps is at the right front, m.b. right rear, and hard drive mounts
on left.

There is no room for a standard size cd-rom, and if you use a slimline
you may have a fit problem: with a via pd the back edge of the cd-rom
meets the top edge of the memory stick.

Hope this helps,
   Russ
