    If you can find a small enough Laptop MOBO, the ram is only about an inch long and the HDDs are about 2.5" wide, so it should all fit except the PSU, in which case if you use laptop aprts you could use a battery

    Using a psu made for mini ITX builds you SHOULD be able to fit it in there with a mini ITX board and using a riser card/cable on your GPU.
