Question Would this work?

Would i be able to buy a new case for my computer HP Pavilion S7700N Slimline Desktop PC (windows 7) (Amazon.com: HP Pavilion S7700N Slimline Desktop PC (AMD Athlon Processor 3800 Plus, 1 GB RAM, 250 GB Hard Drive, SuperMulti DVD Drive, Vista Premium): Computer & Accessories) And just put everything in there so i can upgrade the specs ,i have a EvGa GeForce GTX 260 (Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!) but i only got the graphics card itself it didint have any wires.

Please help me

P.S if anyone is very good at build PCs it would be very helpful if we could voice chat over skype (No Webcams though).

You'll need a new psu too, as 1 it won't fit, and 2.. won't run a 260.

These cases will work as they are mini-ITX compatible.

As patonb said, you will need a new PSU.
