The Antec Fusion cases are popular around here - their sister cases,
the NSK2480 and NSK1480, are identical to the Fusion and Microfusion
respectively, but lack the LCD display, remote receiver and volume
knob. The MicroFusion requires low profile expansion cards, though,
which is a pain. I know Sparkle do have a low profile GT220, and
perhaps other manufacturers too.
