[PLUG] Computer case

Good morning,

I'm having troubles finding a proper computer case for a low-end server I'm building. I bought a zotac atom 330 motherboard (http://1nw.eu/!7x) and 2 500GB 3,5" drives (I do RAID1). Microcenter did not have a case that would be mini-itx and have 2 internal slots for the hard drives. It's quite an unusual setup.

So I looked around, Newegg has some : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811108396 But they come with a power supply, and the motherboard already has one integrated. I could get the case and remove the power supply, but it would look ugly.

Another possibility is to get a case with one internal and one external 3.5" slot, and use a rack for the external slot. Antec has a nice one:

Do you guys know of a better solution ? I'd like a case that's mini-itx, doesn't have a power supply and has 2 internal 3.5 slots. Should also be around $50/60.
