Help me downsize my PC System

I have a full sized pc tower, and need the space it is taking up, along with the desk and everything.

Any suggestions on a smaller case which will take an ATX mobo.
want to keep.

Current system comprises:
2GB DDR2 ram
Intel core 2 dup E6600 cpu
AGP NVIDIA graphics card - 256 MB and VIVO - needed as use for capturing video cam video's
DVD writer
2 SATA Drives
2 IDE Drives
a few pci cards - inc pci wifi and firewire card
Motherboard is an ASROCK DUAL 775 VSTA - onboard 7.1 audio
PSU is a good 600 watt jobbie as before it was too low and couldn't handle all the drives etc

Basically I want to rebuild all these into a smaller system, and be able to edit and capture video via the AGP and firewire.

Any suggestions ?

I don't really want a laptop as all this hardware - which is still fairly capable will go to waste.

Oh , I am running win Xp SP3, But will be upgrading to Win 7 soon [i hope]

Want to spend money on a case and reuse as much of the stuff as poss

Would like maybe a shuttle style system, to put next to TV in bedroom, and use on that. So HDMI or VGA port needed.
I know I will prob need to get a PCI graphics card but which one?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I just stuck my tower PC behind my TV in living room can barely see it :) will subscribe though as may want to downsize too.
any input here guys? [and girls]
I think you'll struggle to get a small form case for a ATX motherboard as they are large in the first place, you can get smaller cases that take mATX boards if you want to replace that.
ive had some people recommend a lian pc a05nb case.
looks pretty good too. and it will take a full sized atx as well.
might go down that road
i got the coolermaster elite 360 - its been a job getting it all in tho.
