What's the smallest recommend case I can use with this lite gaming build?

Got a nice 750 ti gaming build but after I made it, I'm a bit disappointed with how much room it takes up.

Any suggestions or there not much available when you have a video card? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/br1ckhouse/saved/hhndnQ

Not that a cards dimensions can't be a hindrance in choosing a case but you chose a ATX motherboard. That's a full sized mobo so your stuck with a full sized case. Even smaller cases hold full sized GPU's,

So if you want a small form factor PC your going to have to go with a smaller board in a smaller case. So it's not the cards dimensions it's your mobo.

A matx or mitx (which is even smaller) board are your options then you choose a case that fits those boards.
