Need some help here, I don't have much experience with this kind of thing. I have an Acer Aspire X1700 (Came in a REALLY small case which makes upgrading it not possible). So I've decided I wanted to migrate everything to a new computer case so I have some upgrade room.

Here is a link for the specs:
(If links aren't allowed just google it, you'll find it easily)

Anyway I wanted to know what I need to look for in a regular sized tower to make sure all of the parts will fit in, and I don't have much experience upgrading computers so if I migrated all my parts it is upgradable like I was told right?
Got this computer off a friend for $75 so no biggy if I can't upgrade it.

Well the main factor here is whether or not acer uses standard mobo size/mounting screw layout. (ATX/microATX)
mATX wiki

I would check your case to make sure it fits the standard size/ mount port location. Once you have done that it is a simple ordeal to find a mATX compatible case that you like and moving the parts over smile.gif
