Default hey new setup

i thought about it and what about this upgrade to my current computer?

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 2000MHz HT 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939

G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel

XFX PV-T73G-UDE3 Geforce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16

ive already got the hard drive and what not...but i was wondering will this fit in a mini tower? and if not what good case that is between 100 and 150 dollars do you guys recommend?

doesn't look like that mobo will fit in a microATX tower since it only says ATX..

for 100-150 i'm sure you can get a great tower. its your personal choice i reckon.. since they're probably all really good.

depends if you want flashy or conservative

just see one that looks good to you with good reviews.

Yes, your motherboard will fit in an ATX mini tower.... HERE are some examples from Newegg...

one word of caution though... a MICRO ATX motherboard will fit BOTH ATX & MICRO ATX cases.... an ATX motherboard WILL NOT fit in a MICRO ATX case. Just make sure it is an ATX case, not micro ATX and you are golden.
