okay, so i have this very expensive sweet looking card with a nice cool sticker on top. problem is, in the computer it installs upside down (which is normal). wish there were some sort of backward computer or something where i could see the card through a case window. any such case?

...hmm, you could always turn the case upsidedown....but, then again that might open a whole new can of worms.........:nana:

SFF has AGP on the outside. You can even buy one with a window pre-installed.

Silverstone's TJ-06 (http://www.hexus.net/content/reviews/review.php?dXJsX3Jldmlld19JRD03ODM=%20) should be available soon.

ATX upside down. And cool looking, too. :D

That Lian-Li case rox.
I have had one a few months now, only problem is the mobo tray is not removable which is a pain. See how close the cpu cooler is to that sheet of alloy! well thats where my cpu clip lives. I had to bend the cooler clip to get it to fit because the mobo capacitors were in the way on the other side which forced me to put the clip on the bottom. Also there is no reset switch (had to fit a switch myself to the back of the case) Other than that the build quality is amazing and the wheels come in so handy, I could not live without them now.

Genuine side panel replacement is now available with a window so you can see your lovely gfx card. :D

Corsair Pro memory L.E.D.'s are also the correct way up :) and the graphics card is drawing in cool air from the holes in the top of the case.
