I doubt your going to be able to find one, they used a custom board with a 18 pin power supply hookup-so not only is the board custom made for the case, so that means they dont really make ones on the open market that will fit, but if you did find one that could somehow fit-chances are the power supply wouldnt work with it. What I would suggest, if you really need more ram, if you have vista or 7 buy a flash drive and use ready boost. It wont be as fast as actual ram, but it will be better then what you have now, a USB drive being used as memory operates about the speed of standard DDR. For instructions on how to use readboost click here
