Smallest case with enough space for a Strix 1080?

I'm trying to make transporting my computer easier so I'm moving from a full tower to SFF. I need to make the transition as cheaply as possible, so I'm keeping my existing RAM and GPU. I'm still trying to decide whether to upgrade my CPU or just get a smaller motherboard for it. The GPU is a Strix 1080, with dimensions of 298mm x 134mm x 40mm. Does anyone know the smallest case that can fit this card? Ideally it would also be reasonably cheap ($50-75 ideal, $100 max).

Thanks.

but that card is quite a big one, not particularly SFF friendly

here it is pushing the boundaries of the old Corsair Graphite 380T (a case I would recommend if it was still available)

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

Yeah, it's a struggle but I have to work with what I've got 🤷‍♂️. Thanks for the recommendations.

Rest of system specs?

Are you prioritizing lower volume, smaller footprint, or lower weight?

Decent ITX cases are not very cheap.

With handle: Lian Li TU-150

Without: Coller Master NR200 / NR200P 

I think Jonsbo has some cheaper smaller cases as well, with or without handles. No experience with those though.
