I want to build a gaming computer with parts I already have.
I have a Slimline s3120n PC. I am planning on building a decent gaming pc, but I have a tight budget. Here is all the info for my PC (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883107396). Here is my question. Could I disassemble my PC, take the MoBo, Optical Drive, and Hard- Drive, put it inside a micro ATX case, install a decent graphics card, change the PSU, replace and upgrade the ram, and make it my budget rig? If I can do that, can I install any graphics card that will work with the PSU? Thanks guys.

Depends on which kind of slot your motherboard has for video not psu.
the 6150 is probably a agp 2.0( not sure )
so your mobo may go pci 1....??
It can't be done. From the picture of the back, it's obvious that expansion cards are mounted on a riser card.
What does that mean? I think that there are 2 pci slots and both are being used. However, I plan to remove the tv tuner and move my wireless pci card to the pci slot to leave the pci-e slot open. Can it be done now?
Looks like one of those extremely small desktop PC's. The 6150LE is an integrated GPU chip. Your PSU has 160W, which is too little for any decent GPU upgrade, but you can take the components out, the motherboard is m-ATX if I'm not mistaken.
