Ok, I know that most ATX cases are also drilled for a matx motherboard. But will an ATX PSU be harmfull to any of the matx components? I am on a tight budget and am having to build a gamer a peice at a time. Plus I cant find a graphics card that will fit in the damn thing(the el185) , not to mention the 220w PSU. This is also my first computer build, so I don't want to mess up anything expensive right out of the box.
i am doing the same thing. i have an el1852g-52w that i am taking mobo, hdd, dvd, and graphics (aftermarket) out of this small case and putting it into a Cooler Master MASTER Storm Enforcer SGC-1000-KWN1 case. i bought a 450w atx psu and wondered the same thing. and from everything i have been told, it should not be a problem at all. They should work together like peas and carrots.
also my first build. i recomend that you get the cooler master that i mentioned above. it is the cheapest case that has tooless design and water-cooled ready. great investment for the soon to be pro gamer
