Turning Old Pre-Built Gateway into a HTPC - New Case?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The Gateway computer I have is this:
The Case - http://support.gateway.com/s/CASES/3507030R/3507030Rnv.shtml
The Computer - http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009153/1009153nv.shtml

It's an Athlon X2 4200+, and it's still fairly capable of being a HTPC. The only thing is, the case is ugly and I want to try and replace it. BUT, the form factor is uBTX.

My question is, do you guys know of any good cases that will take the Mobo included in this Gateway machine? I tried searching in some online stores, but could not find any.

I'm also hoping the mounts on the mobo are in standard areas, and not made to be proprietary.

To be more specific about the case, I would like to have a plain and simple black one, preferrably mini.

Actually scratch that, the board isn't mini redface.gif
