Might not even need a case, as I could probably reuse the old one.

Suggestions anyone?

Twelve is right.

If you don't need an OS though, it'd be a different story :) .

I don't. This is actually for my mother's office desktop, and I think she wants to use an old copy of Windows XP (for compatibility issues).
