Default Flex PCI extender in Canada?

Wasn't really sure where to put this, but figured it fits in best with HTPC / small case applications.

Anybody out there have a good Canadian resource for HTPC / ITX supplies? I'm looking for a ribbon cable PCI slot extender similar to the one listed here.... LinITX.com - PCI Flexi Riser Card - Left Facing - 7cm Cable

What's a "passive" PCI card?

I want to be able to run the cable between two of the 9600GSO cards so that I can install my PCI audio card..... ;)

when you saw your first post, i was think that you were making a Mini ITX PC

I was asking if you were gonna use a passived cooled PCI GPU

and from what your saying is that you want to use that poor man's folding rig as a HTPC?

your gonna need at least 150mm for the extender.
