I have a great idea (or pointless if who perhaps already did it) why not mounting monitor on side of computer case for a space saver. Almost like AIO PC, but ease to access in the PC case with the larger hardware inside. What y'all thinking?

CPU:AMD Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor | Motherboard:MSI B450M GAMING PLUS Micro ATX AM4

Memory:G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB)  DDR4-3200

GPU:ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT 8 GB Phantom Gaming D OC | Storage:Silicon Power A55 512 GB SSD |Case:Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L

Power Supply:Corsair CXM (2015) 450W Bronze 80 Plus |OS:MS Windows10 (64-bit)

If you have a case heavy enough to not fall over, with metal side panels you can drill through, you could buy a VESA mount and jerry rig a monitor mount to the side of your case. You'd want the lightest, thinnest VESA supported monitor you could get though, otherwise you'd need quite the beefy case to counterweight it.

A mATX or a "box shaped" mini-ITX case would definitely help if you wanted to install a VESA mount on the case. Sounds like a nice idea. I don't see the benefit though, even full towers aren't THAT big, just put it on the floor or something.

It's hard to imagine this being significantly different than just putting your case behind your monitor.  Incorporating the two would only save a couple inches or so (however much your monitor stand sticks out the back).

 

If you're looking to sell a product, I think a better idea would be a  VESA mount stand with a slim profile where the rear leg is relatively thin so it could slip under a computer case.  This could give you the same space savings without needing to actually attach the two.
