Basically, the kit salvageable from my old desktop is as follows:
Asus P5B mainboard with an Intel Core2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66GHz with bog standard DDR2
If possible it would be cool to keep my ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro. GFX card, but this isn't overly important. I also have a brand new only used once PSU which could be used if needed.
Now comes the interesting bit! I have a strong feeling there is an old Shuttle case in the attic, and as I don't want a massive PC lying around I was thinking of making use of this, now here's the question
Would my kit fit inside the Shuttle case, or something similar? (Basically is the main board too big - therefore, what's the smallest case it could manage?)
If not, I guess I could spend a little money, so found this - http://www.cclonline...tid=sg41j1plus#
- Can't find the model number for the mobo, only the chipset - different?
- Would this take my Intel E5750?
- And my Graphics card?
OR, is there a small case/something similar that would fit my stuff?
Obviously I'd prefer to keep my set up exactly as it is (save money) and simply transplant the lot into a new case, but I don't mind spending some money on it if it means I can get a nice small case.
