Hello. I recently bought a Dell Dimension 4300s from a friend for $150. I found it easily upgradable and my problem is, the case is so small. Its one of those Slim cases businesses use and stuff. My case is constantly half open cause my graphics card is way to big. Because of the small case the 2 pci slots it has plug into the motherboard and are not directly from the motherboard. The AGP slot on the other hand is. I find this hard to upgrade because the case is so fit to it.

I wanted to know if there are any cases out there like this or am i gonna have to buy a case and do some adjustments?

Thank you.

If this one of those boards with a riser card in it (ie the PCI Slots and what not are at 90 degrees to the board) then you've got no chance at all of recasing riser dependent boards.

Plus if its a Dell machine, it'll have been made for that board for the stuff that came with it originally and sod anything else added afterwards.

So you may out of luck I'm afraid.
