Hi, is this motherboard:


compatible with this pc's parts:


The main things that i am worried about when i looked at the compatibility of this board are the PSU, and the Form Factor. My form factor just says desktop unit/micro tower. The main reason i am upgrading is for a PCI-E slot, and the SATA and DDR2 are great extras. I tried to measure my motherboard dimensions but as i couldn't get in enough, i estimated the dimensions are around 9.75"x9.75".

Also does anyone know of anywhere where i can get it cheaper than eclipse computers?

From the looks of the Mb and the computer the Mb will fit the case. It seems that the Asrock MB is european market only as i cannot find that MB at USA suppliers. Micro ATX motherboards usually do fit in mATX cases. By the way Asrock is a subsidiary of the ASUS motherboard manufacturer. It is their budget priced boards that ASUS does not want to sell as ASUS MB's.

Perhaps a british tech here could know more about this. Warriorscot!

Um, the Amazon link is a full blown computer. Why do you want to change the board in it before you even buy it? Bear in mind the warranty listed on the site only applies if you don't change anything in it, so putting the Asrock board in renders the warranty invalid as it isn't the same computer.
