If you want to build your own, PCI Case (http://www.pcicase.co.uk/)
offer 1U rackmount cases that'll take a standard ATX motherboard and
allow one PCI card.
Alternatively there are the likes of DNUK (http://www.dnuk.com/), OSEU
(http://www.oseu.co.uk/) and GND (http://www.gnd.com/) who can build
custom 1U servers.
