If you take out your hard drive and install it on another mother board you will most likely need to resinstall windows. SAVE your data before you move the hard drive.
Hello. First off I want to thank everybody who reads each others posts and adds a little help.
I have an HP Media Center Editon PC 864N. I love my computer, except there's no room for future expansion.
All of my PCI slots are taken up (there's only three), I have a flimsy 200W power source, and there's no open drives. It runs hot, and there's only one fan.
I want to buy a new case. I have my heart set on this Silverstone case (http://xoxide.com/ssttjo4.html). Yet, it only has two fans, and I would love to find an aluminum/steel case with exhaust fans on top.
Also, I want to buy a new motherboard that supports my current processor, yet will leave me room to update my processor in the next couple years.
Can anybody offer me any advice on a case or mobo?
Here are my specs:
