Default Smallest ATX case to fit 11" vid card (5870)?

Hey all, tried googling it but getting threads from 2009 & 2010.:p As of April 2012, what's the smallest ATX case that can fit my 11.1" 5870? I'm sick of my Corsair 600T, its just too huge! it's a great case but i get gasps everytime someone walks into my acse as its a beast and i've tried moving my comp for the occasional LAN partiy and its just a pain (literally!). Any suggestions? thanks in advance! Again the smallest ATX case that can fit this beast of a card!

I have a Lian Li PC-A05N and it held a GTX 580 with a triple slot Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme on it (11.5 ").

It accepts a full size ATX board, but it really needs the optional lid with the 140mm fan opening to keep things cool with a video card like that.

Hard to find part and an absolute rip off at that price (I payed like $20).

jesus that's $250! That's more expensive than my enormous Corsair 600T! you'd think a small atx case would be cheap! anything in the ~$100-$150 range?

I've come to embrace stupid prices for niche equipment. Wasted enough money on this hobby I don't begrudge some more, tho I would never 'recommend' it to others.

My mum says I'm special.
