I have recently bought my HTC vive, and I have had my gaming PC for about a year now.
Along with getting a vive, one of the best things to do is share the experience, as most of you know.
My small issue is my pc case size and weight. I have a rather large heavy case and it is a pain to move and transport to take the vive to peoples houses or even move it around my house to play vive in the living room. I don't want to change pc parts to fit a new case but I just want a smaller more travel friendly case. My current PC specs are below, if you guys could help recommend some case options under $100 US. The case needs to be ATX compatible.
Also I am considering getting a slimmer CPU cooler if needed when getting a smaller case. I can't remember my cooler's model off the top of my head right now.
Thank you for your time!

small and ATX don't really fit together too well.

Downside is maximum GPU length of 300mm (according to the page, possibly limiting it as a choice)
Other alternative would be to change the motherboard to micro ATX or ITX which in turn would hurt availability of other components/space.

Edit: As alternative http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/carbide-series-clear-400c-compact-mid-tower-case
which isn't small (it really can't be as ATX) is still somewhat... small-ish.
