It looks good. Lotsa fans, always a good sign, and plenty of room for HDD's in the front mounting bays. If you like it's looks get it.

Have fun

Thanks apocalypse_kid,

Another question. Right now I have an HP comp. What I want to do is upgrade it into the new case. What kinda problems do you think I'll have? If any. If you need anymore info, i'll post it here after i get home from work.

P.S. Any info/help from others around the forum would be welcome also, as this is my first time building/upgrading.

Erm, what parts were you thinking of moving across? Depending on what model HP you have, you may have problems with, A) The motherboard, some of them use non-standard backplane layout which likely won't fit any adaptor plates, B) Floppy drive, your HP drive may be non-standard with no face plate and a non-standard eject button that won't fit the new case, C) CDROM ditto as for B, D) Front panel connectors on mobo , almost certainly not standard, problems there, E) HP's quite often have no CPU fan with custom cowlings and seperate fans for CPU cooling.

Your HDD should be ok, but the rest is an unknown seeing as you didn't supply the HP model number. Have had ppl ask us to do this in our business and the answer is usually no - cause with all the custom fitting it will usually cost them more than getting new stuff - and they won't have as good a comp anyway.

Good luck

It's a pavilion 750n w/ an asus mobo. The other things I'll have to get from SiSandra when I get home. But it looks like I'll need to buy everything new. No worrys m8, just take me a little longer to get it all together. have to buy one piece at a time.

Thanks again, and :rock: on!
