Any case I can migrate my parts to?

Pavilion 570-p026
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm gonna get a graphics card upgrade for my computer sometime next year but I have a problem with the case, it doesn't support sizes of many cards. I was looking at RX 560 deals on eBay but found that even if I got a deal I couldn't install it because of the space restriction. My case could only support only cards about 6 inches which the Gigabyte RX 560 was 7.48 inches. I also found out that the motherboard manufacturer (Lubin) doesn't really have a motherboard size but just lists dimensions and saying it's custom made. I don't want to get a case that doesn't support my motherboard configuration as I already have many issues. If you could, can you suggest any good cheap cases that I can transfer my parts for future upgrade?

@Syntaxium,

There are several problems with your theory:

1) Any double wide graphic card must be shorter than the distance from the rear cabinet to the ATX 24 pin main plug. Otherwise, the graphic card will not seat.  Regardless of the case, the motherboard is placed at the rear of the case to allow the backplate to be mounted. There is no magic trick to make the distance from the expansion rail to the main plug longer.

2) Trying to adapt a case requires you to re-wire the new power switch to an HP board.  Not a simple task.

 

Glad you asked !!! So many have failed trying to create a Lubin-Frankenstein.

So I need more than a case, graphics card, and PSU? 😕

Hmm, I don't know if I can make a tight fit or not but I have a spare GPU that I can probably use for a quick demo. If your scenario is true and I have no choice maybe I could use a PCIe extender or some type of cable?
