What do you mean by mini Tower cpu's? You can do a search for what you want at Newegg.com, and some of the products even have bulk discounts.

I think they call them mini towers.. but they are housing for the cpu's just really small.. like 8" x 10" or so.

thank you.

you see them like in business..like costco's optometry center..
but they are like 3" thick 8" deep and 8" wide. when your limited on space.. it does everything a normal tower does but just more compact. SHOOT. I just cant figure it out. but i dont know if HP has them and the ones I saw @ costco were Dell's but I look at dells website... and cant find crap. wt-****

I personally prefer the Silverstone SST-LC12; however, shed caution on the thermal output of your proposed configuration as the case cannot take much heat.

Dell and HP both sell such computers. You have to look under Business systems, not Home systems.
