:nod: :nod: POS Gateway, but at least it's a puter. They call it the "flex" case. About the size of a VCR, but I can't add any PCI cards cause the damn case is too small:mad:

That's a shame. You should have got the mid tower case, but that might not have been an option. :(

if you have the money, you could just buy a new mid-tower case..
a switch over is very easy..

See, that's what I have been thinking. Recycling my old parts and put them in a new mobo and case.

The mobo is specific to gateway. I highly doubt it will go into a different case. It's a tiny little thing too.

I have 3 USB ports in the back and two in the front. Do you still think it would go into a different case?

nope!

EDIT: teh front usb posts are most likey part of the case and u could have them on a new case but i'd leave it as is until u decide to upgrade.
