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

Re: Old Case
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.

Re: Old Case

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.

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

Re: Old Case
Yes, but upgrading your motherboard on that PC is kind of pointless.

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

Re: Old Case
If you don't have one next to you where you can save on shipping I suggest using instead.
