I have a Motherboard, PSU, RAM, CPU, and Gfx card from my old build. I am looking to give them to my dad to help him get a better computer than his current Dell All-In-One PC. The parts listed above however, were part of my stock OEM computer that I got from a rent to own place. I know the GFX card, PSU, RAM, and CPU will work with this MB, however, he needs a HDD for this and a case, along with Windows. I am looking to buy a new HDD and Windows 7 for him to use with these parts. Will the MB accept the new HDD?

Hello heartgrave

I will provide them later tonight around 830 eastern time. Thats 5 hours and 24 mins from now. You want the part numbers and such right? Is there a particular reason behind needing this info? Just curious! :P

Yes the usual details please heartgrave.

NB: You only said the parts were from your old build and not how old.

HAHAHA got me LOLing in the middle of work at that. :P What I meant by my old build was the build you have helped me upgrade over the years. Most recently the Intel MB package 2 months ago that had the MB, Intel CPU, and the 8 gig ram with Windows 7 and the GFX card you helped me upgrade like 2 years ago. I still have all those original parts.

The MB specs http://www.findlapto...80p-specs-dell/ please confirm that it is correct.

Case http://us.ncix.com/p...nufacture=Antec
HDD http://us.ncix.com/p...te&promoid=1387
OS http://www.amazon.co.../?tag=pcpapi-20

The price of the smaller capacity HDDs makes them financially unviable and that is why I have selected the 1TB

Gday iammykyl :thumbsup:
The monkey pulling the strings is meant to be a secret :whistling:

We had a different case in mind, but thanks for the help finding that one. As long as it is a Mid case it will work right? Will it matter that this MB was previously attached to a OEM system?
Yes that is the MB.

I suggested the Antec because of the build quality and excellent cooling system, what particular case did you have in mind (avoid plastic ones).

The Antec will accept the following • Motherboards: Standard ATX, microATX, Mini-ITX.

No it will not matter about the MB as there is no licence agreement between yourself and the MB manufacturer and there is no transfer of an OS involved.

The case, HDD and OS are all good with the MB :thumbsup:

Smart looking case, it would benefit from a front cooling fan to draw in cool/clean air.
