Hello community, I'm having some problems figuring out what form factor my motherboard has. I thought this was going to be easy, as I need to order a new Motherboard for this processor I just got. So I used Sisoftware Sandra and CPU-Z and they both told me I have a Nvidia MCP61 board. I looked up images of my board and none of the results matched my board, so I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to order the wrong board and only realize it won't fit into my case. I have no idea what case I have either, a friend built this for me about 3 years ago. Any help would be much appreciated.

More aboutcannot figure form factor
Hi, What are the dimensions of the board?
I will go measure it, be right back with the dimensions. I didn't do this already because I saw a post where the guy had dimensions but couldn't find the form factor.
Its an AM3 socket. I think its an AMD Athlon x2 265? I had bought a AMD Phenom 2 quadcore 965 but the motherboard only supports 65w and the processor i bought was 125w.
And you'd like to keep the case? It's hard to find a flex ATX board. Can the case acommodate a micro ATX board (9.6x9.6)?
I believe it can there is a lot of empty space in the case, I just wonder if the increased size would move the location of the Audio/usb ports on the back of the case very much. but if you think it'll be close to my original board then I'll get it.
