Need help finding the right case

Ive got everything I think would be good, but there is just one problem, and thats the case. I originally had a case I wanted but it wouldnt fit in the area I wanted to put it and would have to be put on the floor, so I need help finding one thats within my size limit. The one I have in this build is just a placeholder, so you can ignore it :P. I need the case to be ( L x W x H[or depth, however you want to say it] ) Under 17" x Under 11" x Under 17" The main things Im worried about are the length and height. The last case's height was 20" and was too big to fit. It doesnt have to look amazing, as it is going to be under my desk and my keyboard stand rolls out so you cant see the computer, but I'd be nice to have something not horribly ugly :P

It's not in stock but this case would work I'm fairly certain (i hope)

I dont know if it will come out by the time I buy the rest >.> Do you think this would work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129072 Took a while to find and this just barely fits the size requirements. Ill be looking for more that fit the size requirement in the meantime, until the phenom comes.

However if it fits then sure I just dont see anything for cable management options

I know it doesnt look like the best but it wouldnt be very visible when its in use, thats also partialy why im not going with a fancy looking case xP

like ryne said you should look into either a micro atx case or an mini itx case. the phenom is a good one that just got released and there are a lot of others the should fit your build and space requirements.

Im noticing that most of them say I need a mini atx/itx motherboard. Does that mean i'd have to change the one I already have?

Thank you :) You just saved me from what could have been a long while of looking for a case. Do you have any recommendations besides the phenom that isnt out of stock?

the second one, the 350d, also comes in a window side panel version if thats more of what you are looking for.
