Need a smaller/lighter case...

    Hey everyone, a while back I did a big upgrade which included a new case, I went with the lian-li K58w. Great case, lost of features and looks good... however it is a HEAVY ass case with everything installed and it's just too big to be able to throw under your arm and move it. I had not planned on moving it much but the more time goes on the more I find myself taking it different places and it's just too big and awkward for mobility.

    So... To the point here I'm looking for a much smaller/lighter case, preferably with a window, to house the following parts
    -MSI P67A-G43 ATX motherboard
    -1xDVD-RW
    -Corsair H50
    -1xSSD
    -2xHDD
    -GTX460

    I was looking at the LIAN LI PC-A05FNB but the lack of a windows kinda turns me away. What are your suggestions?

    Thanks!!!

    Get a mATX motherboard and your smaller case options will open up.:)

    True, but then that's another chunk of change I gotta spend just to get into a smaller case... but I might have to
