Impeach and try Bush/Cheney! 911 was an inside job!
Small cases

I'm building a computer for a lady. She doesn't mostly Corel Draw and Photoshop. She wants the case to be on the smaller end, but she wants an i7 CPU and a 7000 series GPU or nVidia equivalent. She's hooked on a triple monitor set-up, since I let her borrow my computer the last time I was sent on military training on the East Coast.

Can anyone make any recommendations on smaller size cases to put a decent build together?

You mean: Small Form Factor.

The mobo, cpu, ram, ssd/hdd won't be a problem. The video card however... anything decent is probably too big for a small case.

Nice... that's pretty thin (in terms of depth)

edit: Newegg says it's been discontinued.

Even the smallest desktop is still not a portable. Get a classic mini-tower of your choice - she might like an aluminum one.

Why reinvent the wheel? This way you have more choices when it comes to vidcards, drives and PSUs.
