go with the adapter if you want higher than 600MHz.
There is no way he can get an Athlon into an Emonster
the cases are tine with off standard mobo mounting points
the PSU is only like 135w and the size of my fist
and finally the back of the case would have to be cut out for the connectors
dont even think about changing the psu the opening is too small unless u mount it outside
Of course he couldnt fit the athlon mobo into the emachine case, I meant he would be better off not getting a new p3 and getting a tbird system instead, the 40 dollar case wont hurt that much and he will have 2 whole systems, almost.
