I want this to be a gaming PC.
It obviously isn't.
Its not even a mid-tower.
Which is what I need to upgrade to but don't know how.
I have an LED light on the front of my case I'm not sure where I'll put when I get the new tower.
I don't know how to remove my DVD burner.
Or switch my card readers to the new tower.
I'm also not entirely sure how to install a new PSU.
Ontop of that I'll still need to buy a good GPU with a S-Video port.

Help, anyone, please?

Quad Qore, q8300, 2.5Ghz
Intel Integrated Graphics (Forget which one it is)
500GB HDD
And I believe my PSU is about 220 Watts

All of this why you may ask?
Not even my geforce 6200 fits inside of this extremely small case.
I want to go from a Small tower to a mid-tower case and install all my previous components properly. Considering that my current tower has card readers and an LED light im assuming it will be a bit harder then just any other computer. Also, I'm not sure if my network card will fit in the new case considering the width of the case will be longer.
Please, I just got this computer and its the best deal that there is.

I am about to build my own PC and like you I am new to this. I was able to find some instruction that was posted by Corsair on how to build a PC. Hope this helps get you started.[url="http://www.corsair.c...port_id=78237"]
