Im looking at upgrading my PSU and video card when I figured out that I have no room in my current case to really upgrade my PSU so Im going to buy a new case and have found a few I like and would like to know if I could transfer my current motherboard and setup in general to the case(details on pc and cases below). I have a newer HP Pavilion with decent stats and have decided to upgrade to a 506Ti most likely. Thanks in advance for any help :) 

General Specs of PC:

Case I want:

Alternate case:

I just need to know if my motherboard will fit into either of those cases. I am going to try to order these parts tonight, so any help will be appreciated thanks

both will work but i would also upgrade the motherboard and cpu if i was you because places like DELL and HP usually get the cheapest cpu/motherboard they can
a c 392 V Motherboard

Either case will work just fine for the HP uATX motherboard. For a PSU go with a Seasonic, Corsair or PC power and cooling of 500w or more.

I have no money to afford that at this time but im told the cpu I have in the computer (AMD A6-3650 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics (4 CPUs), ~2.6GHz) is pretty decent. The motherboard Im not too sure on however, but it is pretty new. I mean it depends on how much a better cpu would cost

I was looking at getting corsair 430 and a 560Ti for the time being due to a little bit of money constraint, but can make a few exceptions. Is the cpu really that bad? and how much would a better one cost?
