Moving the 'guts' of a small case, into a MUCH bigger case.

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).

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
Windsor 90nm Technology

Ram: 6.0GB Kingston Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 334MHz 5-5-5-15

Motherboard: Dell Inc OHY175 (Socket M2 )
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Chipset

Graphics: ATi Radeon HD 4350 - Low Profile Card

HDD: 1TB Samsung HD103SJ SCSI Disk Device

A rebuild would be a much better idea, the CPU is pretty old, and the Mobo aint all that good either.
