how could a g4 of g3 tower be modified ot fit a bigger motherboard?

i have an asus a7n8x board sitting around that i'd like to make into a computer if it still works (it was overclocked and something stopped working; powersupply was said to have been a possibility and i have a new one). i considered the powermac g4 tower since i like the design with the hinge and just how small it is form being a minitower. the issue is the powermac has 4 expansion slots (including video card) while the asus has 6 slots including video card. could it be remotely possible for this board to fit in the case? i doubt i'd be using all the slots. i'd probably have the video card, a dlink wireless card, and a firewire card. if this case isn't appropriate, does anyone know of a company that makes good cases?

Lian Li makes awesome cases.

Lian Li makes awesome cases. i would love to go with some of the cases that have the air chamber that flows over the cpu area. ive been inspired by the G5 air flow and have since tried to make something like it but its very hard with the way ATX is setup.

well that sounds good. i did

well that sounds good. i did have a case and old motherboard at one time that i put together with some fans that someone didnt want for their computer. dead silent. but, sadly, the processor fans were shot. somebody threw the computer away. god, i could've taken my ram and drives back! i'll look into that company.

Another slotted G4 case

If the mobo will fit maybe you can find a G4 Digital Audio case (or higher to MDD 2003). They had 4 PCI slots and 1 AGP so you'd have 5 slots on the back instead for your hack.
