Old Case
 
I have a desktop computer that I'm using right now. It's an E machine ET1161-05. i was wondering does anyone know what the Form Factor is like if it's nini atx or standard ATX cause im interested in updating the computer

It's an mATX form factor. That motherboard will fit in any mATX /ATX tower or desktop case. Depending on what you plan to update you might be better off just upgrading all the components instead.

+1

I did that a long time ago, and it ended up costing more in the long run than just saving up and building a whole new system.

So if i found a Micro ATX Board i would be able to use that board?

Yes, but upgrading your motherboard on that PC is kind of pointless.

I would just replace the case too. You can get some good cheap ones for 30-50 bucks.

If you don't have one next to you where you can save on shipping I suggest using newegg.com instead.
