what mother board will the case take. Hardware memory card readers fine. 250 GB HD adequate. What newer MD with processor video card and extra RAM can be installed??

do you plan on using the HP version of windows? it may have an issue with a motherboard with non-HP BIOS.

Windows HP Media Edition. If you know it's not compatible, I'll forget the Upgrade idea. I have 2 legacy programs - an AB dating from 1988, and Quicken dating from 1992. I guess I could do a dual boot setup for those - actually would use Win 98 if I did that. I haven't checked Win 7 (pro or equivalent) which would be my choise of a new OS. Not interested in Win 8 except for smart phone.

your best bet would be to check the official HP forum and see if anyone has done it. i know with some mass vendor PCs its easier (emachine) then others (DELL)
