A1212 tower project

Hi,

So for 2012, I want to relocate my A1200 into a PC tower case.

So far I've shortlisted these:

1

2

3

My question is will I be able to do it and how hard will it be? If you look at the rear of the cases they have sections the entire hieght that with a bit of drimmeling I could cut out enough space for the rear of the A1200 motherboard.

I have a A1200 mobo, apollo 040 40Mhz card, DCE flicker fixer, Fast IDE controller, ps2 keyboard adaptor, IDE CD_ROM, IDE HD and a 200 watt power supply.

Any advice would be great!!

Thanks.
