    Ideal mini-itx case

    I've been looking at the Travla C137 case, which is quite spiffy, except that it can't fit both a standard 3.5" HD and two PCI cards at the same time.

    Are there any similar cases that can allow for both two PCI cards and a 3.5" HD? I've been trying to get more info on the ******* cases, but their site is sadly lacking in information.

    And before folks jump in and say "Bah! What would you *ever* need two PCI slots for?" I've got my reasons

    Oh, and yes, I know about the Opus case, but I'm completely unwilling to pay $400 for a case, however spiffy it's supposed to be.

    Aaaaaand, I want to stick with a 3.5" HD instead of going with a 2.5" for cost reasons, and it also seems that folks have had more reliability from the 3.5" drives.

    Can you use normal size RAM inside that case?

    Not in the C158, but I believe the C137 can.
    Problems are that the C137 can only fit two PCI cards if using a 2.5" low-profile drive, and the C158 can fit just one PCI card no matter what.
