Moving the 'guts' of a small case, into a MUCH bigger case. Tags: New Build Cases Systems Last response: July 27, 2010 12:20 AM in Systems Share iainmurdock July 26, 2010 11:27:28 PM Hello, I purchased in 2006 a Dell Dimension C521...http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/desktops/dimen_c521/pd.as... ( I know :[ ) But as the years have gone on I've replaced the parts as best as I can. It now sits with a HDD, Ram and Graphics Card change. Do you think there is any possibility of moving all of this computer into a larger case without 'fatality' or at least some of the parts, so I can upgrade the PC further. Or would it be a better option to start building up a brand new PC from scratch, and leave this computer as it is? (I will provide more information if asked to do so).
