The basics? Put everything in the new case in the reverse order that you pulled it out of the old one. really.

Good case? Depends on your taste and budget. You cna't go wrong with Antec or ThermalTake.

I usually recommend this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129158
because it is big and roomy, and comes with an Antec 500W modular PSU (hard to beat that!).

How would you hook it up? See the first answer.

You're welcome.

well, the case depends on your budget, but I would recommend Thermaltake, go either with their Armor or Tsunami series
