I found a similar computer case at a Computer Fair in Middletown NY this 
past Sunday. In addition to the spring fingers and keyboard connector 
ground, it has slide-out motherboard mounting panel. You can easily 
transfer your present motherboard and peripherals to the slideout panel
while outside the case. It comes with mounting hardware and power supply.

There are several sizes and power supply options available. The one I 
bought is the model SO-G500B AT Super Mini Tower e/w a 230-watt power 
supply. It cost $70.00. The brochure identifies the cases as In-Win

The vendor is Eagletech, 40 Main Street, Pearl River, NY 10965.
