Changing cases

Last response: in Systems

I am very new at this so please bear with me.

I want to move my HP Pavilion m8167c PC into a new case. I've already upgraded my graphics card and I'm think a larger case would be easier to upgrade.

I'm wondering what problems if any I would run into. Thanks in advance.

Shouldnt run into any issues, HP doesnt use BTX like some Dells so you shouldnt have a problem moving the motherboard over. What i would be careful of, make sure all of your cables will be long enough if you pick a more spread out case your cables might not be long enough to reach all of the drive bays. I had to put the IDE DVD drive in my antec 300 in the second slot down because the IDE cable was slightly too short to reach all the way to the top bay.
