Default Re: Interested in upgrading

Your motherboard is a ATX board, meaning it is a full size board. I don't see anything about it being used in any pre-built models, so you case is probably an off-the-shelf case. you should be able to reuse it with no problems.

You could also reuse your optical(s) and floppy drive with no problems. - Foxconn A78AX-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
