For a powered passive ISA backplane, try Jameco. You can buy the chassis,
the passive motherboard (either 14 ISA, or a 10 ISA and 4 PCI combination),
and the power supply separately. Or you can get the chassis with power
supply (300W) for $400, and the backplane is $70 or $120 for the combo

If you want a rackmount case for a standard AT or ATX motherboard, thats
still rather expensive. Try www.cyberguys.com, they have 3 rackmount
cases. One is for AT only, another ATX only, and a third is the least
expensive and accepts ATX or Xeon and costs $243 (though it didnt
say what size power supply it has, so possibly it doesnt come with one).
The AT with 250Watt is $309, the ATX with 300Watt is $341.
