Default New Case

I'd really like a new case because right now all I have is a white one whith LED lights in the front, but right now I can't afford another windows XP. My dad told me to wait until May, my birth day, and ask for longhorn AND a case. From what I've heard longhorn's gonna suck and eat away A LOT of memory. I want to know if I cn move my hard drive and motherboard into a new case without reinstalling windows?

I've used up my XP, and my dad the "computer pro" is either lying or full of crap because he told me if I un plu my drives and everything from my motherboard that I'll have to re-install windows.

Because it's been installed so many different times.

The only reason why you'd have to reinstall because of hardware is when you replace the mobo. Anything else, you can change fine.

I just received this case in the mail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16811208006. Its actually alot bigger than i thought it would be and not as flimsy as some review said. I dont know how the parts will fit since i dont have them at the moment (still in the mail).

That's a nice friggin case. And I''m going to talk to my dad about it. I think he just doesn't want me to get one because no one else sees it but me and my freinds. He told me to buy an LCD monitor instead, but I could still get that and a case.
