Default Is it possible?

In my room, I have an old (10+ years) compaq presario...Could I put a new computer in this case? I'm asking because I would like to mod it (Paint and add more fans) but i'm not sure it it would hold an ATX mobo...anyone know?

well look at the motherboard in it and see if it is really small like a micro ATX. If it is and it seems like it is a close fit then a standard atx mobo wont fit. But if there is a lot of room around the micro atx mobo then you should be able to get one in there.

3.1ghz achieved. :cool:
