Hey all,

My plan is to buy this case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-147-...

and then move everything into in from my current computer. My current computer is this.
(upgraded to 4gigs)
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00...

The case says it'll fit Micro ATX, ATX, and BABY ATX. How do I find out what motherboard I have? ATX, MICRO ATX, OR BABY ATX? I know it's the orginal one that came with my pc. I know it's made by asus. so, my main concern is my motherboard not fitting in the new case.

I was also going to purchase this 500w psu

I liked that cooler master because ppl say it's really quite and efficient.

And to top it off I was gonna go ahead and get the ATI 5670 video card.
I'm on a budget so I can't afford too much.
Guys, i'm pretty noob at computer stuff so any help is great help!

1st off the CM eXtreme Power Plus isn't a good choice at all and actually has low efficiency @@ Have a look at 80+ PSUs and 2ndly if gaming is on the cards i would rather hit sub $100 HD 4850/GTS 250s these days than a HD 5670 to be honest...

oh ok I see. What's wrong with the psu though? I mean wouldn't it get the job done? I'm not really looking to build a modern gaming rig, just something cheap.

There are stuff one could cheap out on but look at a PSU as an investment. In any case the higher the efficiency a PSU is, it would actually pay for itself via power savings u nab over using say a non 80+ PSU hehe
