Question Compaq Deskpro EN Question

Hello everyone

I have an old Compaq Deskpro EN midtower computer with a PII 333 MHz processor. The casing of this computer is very difficult to operate and I would like to switch to a new case, however there is one thing that is keeping me from doing so. The motherboard in this computer does not have integrated PCI slots, it has a PCI and IDE connector riser card that mounts perpendicular onto the motherboard. Does anyone have any idea how may I overcome this problem? I would like to use an Aopen QF50C or alike case for this machine. Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Greetings,
Rez

yeah, just get a desktop, not a tower case.

And when looking at the case, make sure the PCI slots are horizontal, not vertical.

what do you mean? My old mobo + PCI/AGP Riser Card can be properly fit into a server tower?
