The other thing you could do is find an Ultra 10 chassis ... they
pop up from time to time and are usually cheap cheap....

you can then move your guts over (you will need to have the Ultra-10
Riser board though... I believe I have a spare should you ever locate
a chassis and need a riser... (or at least I'm pretty sure I still have
an extra))

Then you can use UPA based frame buffers which have higher performance.
