Need exact model of Gateway or something. Or you can just measure for 12" x 9.6" inside the case, which is the size of an ATX motherboard.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

I wouldn't do it, Gateway cases have horrible cooling and you could pick up a case for $30 or so that would be much better. Besides a lot of the Gateway cases are limited on the video card that will fit. Some are bigger but it depends on what one you have.

New system
NZXT Tempest 410 - I5-4670K - Asus Z87-Plus - SeaSonic SS-750KM3 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular PS
GPU MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G - CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB 1600 (2x8gig) - SAMSUNG 840 EVO 250 -Seagate Barracuda 3-TB

Antec 200 - I7-920 - ASUS P6T - Corsair TX650 it's old but still kicking like a mule
2-EVGA GTX 470 in SLI- ocz vertex 3 SSD 128 gig
Seagate Barracuda 1-TB - OCZ DDR3-1600 12 gigs 3x2
Keeps Me Happy :lol:

If I've been helpful, Please rep me

agreed get a real case and save the headaches. It is kinda like putting a jet engine in a biplane. Unless you are trying some kind of crazy mod in which case that would be cool.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
