Where to begin. Recently got a radeon hd 5670 thinking it would work in my dell inspiron 531s. apprently not whoops.

So i am reading biods not updated to handle 2.1 yadda yadda motehr board. but the case is odd sized very obnoxious.

I'm looking for a cheap solution to building a mid sized atx.

So basically i need help with
Recomended tower
Recomended mother board / cpu that handles pci-e 2.1 X16
ive never actually built my own computer i dunno what components i can transfer buti would like to do it as cheap as possible and still not lose any power or gain

my current stat

Vista home basic
6.0.6002 service pack 2 6002
X86 based
amd athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 4000+ 2100 mhz 2 core 2 logical processors

3 gb ram
ddr2 800mhz

really not sure of info u need... um its basically a stock 531s oonly i upgraded to teh
