    Rackmount PC

    i need to rackmount my PC. it's not for a server, just my PC. i have a lot of rackmount music equip, and plan to integrate the PC with it.

    anybody know where i can get cheap:

    4U 19" ATX rackmount case, maximum 18"deep, minimum 2 external 5" bays, 1 external 3" bay, 2 internal 3" bays.

    4U 19" RAID HD array case, non hot-swap, same maximum dimensions, at least 6 drives, 9 would be great. the disks are 3", but i do not think a case exists for an array of those. may have to just

    key word being cheap. there are a million cases over $300. thats over my budget since i just built this damn 6 drive SCSI3 RAID50 array. i can provide my own ATX PS and cooling.

    anything? or am i barking up the wrong tree? the vendors on pricewatch dont seem to know what they're talking about

    I know of several good cases but none under $300 for what you are asking for esp the raid case.. i built several similar systems for our ships and most of these came out to about 600-700 for just the cases alone and that's with a discount of 20% from our vendor.

    thats exactly it. but no price is listed. ill do a little more digging.

    found several under $300:
    here's one
    but that one was too easy to find. the link to the other one died, and wouldn't you believe it was the cheaper one?!?
