What format is the motherboard? ATX? If the case is ATX it will fit, some ATX cases will also accept smaller boards such as Micro ATX and AT. But you need to check documentation to know for sure.

The board is microATX, so it will fit in both microATX and ATX cases.

You might want to spring for a new PSU while you're at it, though. LGA775's suck up the juice.

Always another upgrade isn't there?
The box said \"Requires Windows 98 or better\" I installed Linux. There\'s no going back.

Emachines, use MicroATX form factors.
