Default LANbox !

Someone a little while back recommended some LANbox cases. Hopefully someone with equal knowledge could recommend some LANbox cases preferably under $150. I'm going to just buy a LANbox case, mATX board, and call it a day. Therefore I can pop my main rig into a LANbox, and have my at home case house my older stuff (E175, Q6600, 8800GT, 2x2GB OCZ Reaper)

And another question. Will an E4500 bottleneck a HD4770?

My two rigs will be as followed:

Main:
CM Storm Sniper
EVGA 750i FTW
Q6600
2x2GB OCZ Reaper

LANBox:
a lanbox case
an Intel mATX board (just a cheap one)
E4500
2x1GB OCZ Platinum XTC


Sound good? It should only cost me a bit of money. I already have for the LANbox, the processor, memory, hard drive, DVD-RW, so the case, another power supply, and a mATX board capable of overclocking the E4500 and I'm ready to go! My budget is tight. Case, $150, PSU, $80, intel matx board, $100. So total budget of $350. (lower the price the better)
