Replacing motherboard on prebuilt PC

Is it possible to replace the motherboard of a pre-built PC? I am looking at some motherboards which are a lot smaller than the one I currently own and is pretty old.

    Yes you can, however:
    - You'd essentially be building an entire PC as you would have disassemble and reassemble everything.
    - You'll want to get familiar with parts so you're sure everything you're swapping out or keeping is compatible.
    - Learn about motherboard form factors and identify yours (ATX, micro ATX, etc.). The case likely won't support a different size.
    - The OEM version of windows is actually tied to the motherboard, so if you're using that you would need to fork over $80 - $200+ to buy a new version of windows.
