    Have you find a box for the party yet?
    How about these http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/product/Chassis/vf1000_index.asp

    I think it will serves the purpose. It's easy to carry with a handle and light.

    it's Micro ATX & mini ITX, i should have said, it needs to be full ATX, which is a shame as that one would have been good.

    You could try the new Lian Li P 80 It's lightweight so there is no problem moving it.

    My Lian Li G70 and my P80 weigh in at 18-20lbs empty so thats not bad at all. I just checked the weight on the Armor +ESA that Thermaltake is sending for review, and its 40lbs lol Damm that almost as much as my old Tai Chi case.

    I'm not sure I've ever seen a "proper" LAN box that takes a full ATX mobo. There are mini-towers that take ATX, but I've not seen something like a Shuttle case, etc.

    Looks like you may have to do a proper tower. Probably find one that's very lightweight though........Thermaltake Matrix VX is very lightweight and cheap.

    http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C...3000_index.asp

    Not the sexiest ever, but won't break the bank account and it's light and ATX. Otherwise you'd be looking at a proper fully-aluminum case that will stretch the dollars alot more.

    Why? I mean does it really have to be a full ATX? If you choose well there are plenty of excellent uATX choices these days and going uATX will really open up the choices when it comes to cases. You could then go for the silverstone SUGO SG01 or 02

    Silverstone SUGO SG01

    Which you can buy a purpose designed carry bag for...

    Silverstone SUGO SG01 Carry bag

    I personally have a much cheaper uATX LAN box, built around this case

    Eye-T eCute

    Have a good think about it - do you really need full ATX for a LAN rig?

    Take a look at the NZXT Panzerbox, it's not small, but this is what NZXT made it for.

    Another poster already suggested the Sugo. There's a modified version on performance-pcs.com that has a handle and window. It'll fit a 9" graphics card such as a Radeon 4850. Though, I'm not sure the 300W psu can run it.
