Ok so i bought a gateway fx 7026 about a year and a half ago.
and now i think it is time for some major upgrades.
but the case the pc came with is much to small!!
would it be possible to transfer all my components to a new case?
do i need to buy a new mother board?

im looking into getting a Geforce GTX 260 but there is no way that 12" beast will fit into this little case.

It's definitely possible. You just need to buy a case that fits the motherboard you have.

If you have a MicroATX or ATX motherboard, you will need to get a case that can fit it. It will say in the specs.

If you need help, list your mobo here.

Go HERE for the specs and pictures of the case.
The case looks to be a mid or mini tower and the back looks like the MOBO will transfer to a new case.
I hope this helps you and Outcome
