Good mATX LAN Cases?

I'm trying to find a smaller case that can house my mATX motherboard and single GPU set-up. It's currently housed in a case with handles (Storm Sniper) because back when I build it, the mATX case selections will fairly limited.

Considering my current case weighs in at 26 lbs empty, even with sturdy handles, it can be annoying to move around. It doesn't necessarily have to have handles if it's light enough to cradle in my arms.

If you're happy to attach the 2.5" SSD using double sided tape or velcro, I think your components should all fit inside of a 20.8 litre Rosewill Legacy U3.

Max Yuryev built a really similar system to yours last year, at least in terms of component sizes, here are his videos that show both the case and the build:

His H80i is 11mm thicker than your H60, his Titan is 6mm longer than your HD 7950, so yours should be an even easier build.
