I doubt you could put those innerds into an atx case... I have an old deskpro 4000 (same form factor) and the motherboard is huge...

the price isn't to bad.. I think it could be beter though... especially since it doesn't include an OS, keyboard and mouse, speakers, or monitor...

Why would you want to put such a bad computer into an even bigger case?

probably not. i tend to stay clear of name brand systems like that in favor of custom built ones that can be upgraded and expanded easily in the future.
