Transferring PC caseFollow

Not too sure if this belongs here or not, as I didn't see any other sub-forum that related.

I have a smaller PC tower, not excatcly sure as to what they are really called.

Anyways, I was wondering if I would be able to transfer all of the components from my current small tower, to a larger one, if I were to purchase one.

I have never transferred towers before, but I cannot imagine it is very hard at all as long as I pay attention to what goes where, etc.

Any input would be appreciated, as I would like to keep my same rig, yet in a bigger case for more cooling/room etc.

As long at the case fits the same type of motherboard (AT, ATX) as your current one, and can hold all your stuff then you shouldn't have any issues.

Like Shaow said, it's straightforward if you're using the same type of case. If you're planning on upgrading your cooling by adding fans, make sure the PSU can support them, too.

If you haven't got one already, it might not be a terrible idea to buy a static-reducing wristband, too. They're cheap, and useful to protect the much more expensive investment of a computer.

Thanks very much for the suggestion. Already have that one covered. Bought it back when I had to fix the RROD on my brother's 360.
