I have an old 550mhz PIII HP8575C with Asus P2BVT motherboard. I want to put in a faster graphics card, but the proprietary power supply is too wimpy. Tried it.

How much work is it to move all the stuff over to a real case? Anyone done this with this type of HP computer???

You simply mount it in another case. The board is standard ATX.

Thanks for the reply! You know about the 8575C????

It has a MiniATX board. A friend found it on ASUS site.
I was wondering if all the power supply connections on the board would match a regular ATX type power supply.

I used to work on equipment in a big way. Now I am worried just about my little pc. Go figure?

I know about the board. And I know about HP. They often used ATX cases (7 slots) with Micro ATX boards (4 slots max), which does work anyway. You can mount that board in an ATX case, the power supply is standard ATX (only the physical size is different on the HP supply). Any ATX case should work and darned near any ATX power supply. Heck, you could even mount it in one of those old Gateway Convertable midtowers from the mid-90's, those were ATX and used standard size ATX power supplies.

BTW, I have a special program at <A HREF="http://www.crashmania.tk" target="_new">http://www.crashmania.tk&lt;/A> that would let you flash Asus BIOS to that board, if you can find the BIOS.

Simple remove the connectors and PCI/AGP cards and move it.
Make sure all the mobo standoffs are in the right place, screw it down, then reconnect everything.
