Buy a small trolley, some foam or similar to cushion it, and strap it in place carefully but firmly. You may want to either remove or find some way to support that monster air cooler as well.

Carefully. Ideally is to have in resting motherboard side down for the most part (less stress from tower coolers/GPU). Dismantling those is another solution, Built in bracing, not worrying about it. These are the reasons I got a Lian Li A05NB that can be put in a duffel bag for the most part tongue.gif. The absolute best solution is to think of "how will I carry this" when you buy the case. Plastic = NTY, Not a strong structure = NTY, Huge size = NTY.

Good idea, as for the air cooler and graphics card go, can't I just lay it down?
