It's odd, I thought the theory behind ATX cases was that the I/O shield
would come with the system board. Anyway...
You can buy a reasonably cheap hand widget called a "nibbling tool" that
can easily cut both the I/O shields and even the cheap steel in the case.
If you want the EMC shield, you can also kludge it together with copper tape.
