rack mount are for servers only, i have never seen any desktop/workstation in rackmount. there is no way you can setup your current hardware in rackmount also, as rack mount comes with a giant heat spreader on the CPU and fans are located at the very end of the system, that draws in the air from front and pushes out at the back.

as far as slim cases are concerned, you may will be able to put in your motherboard, BUT, the graphics card/sound card has to be low profile to fit in the casing (which are inlimited number and are of limited capabilities).

only thing u'll be left with is Shuttle/Asus/MSI barebone systems.

Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
4096MB DDR Kingston Hyper-X
GigaByte GA-P35-DS3R
XFX 9600GT AlphaDog

2RU rackmount cases should have standard sized PCI slots so if you MUST have one of these cases perhaps look into 2RU units.
