    PCI & ITX-PV Super Slim ITX Case

    Is there anyway to get a normal PCI card to fit the ITX-PV Super Slim ITX Case. Im planning on getting a VIA EPIA Mini-ITX mobo which has a PCI card. I notice the case is only 2.5" tall and a PCI card seems 3-4 inches tall. I saw somewhere rightangle PCI adapters. Are these possible for this system (I want to put in my PCI TV card)?

    At least with my case, I don't believe so, at least without some serious case modification. You'd have to remove the case fan, relocate the power supply connector, and cut a huge hole in the case for it to even possibly work with a riser. The case is designed for a low-profile card.

    Also, you might want to try a search in the forums- I think some of the people with this case are working with a USB -> ISA adapter, but that may be just my imagination.
