I've 3 computers and im starting to get tired by their large size.

on two of them, I don't even use their optical drives even when I need to, I just network my main pc's drive... I'm not sure what the "form factor" of the mobo's i have is called so I'm not having an easy time figureing out what to look for XD (and there are no stores within an hrs drive that I can just go look).

as you can see in the picture below, there is just so much wasted space... I'm thinking if i cant buy a smaller case maybe i can just cut the current one (removing where the drive cages are) and rebuild the front of it but not sure if that would work Another Tounge

any ideas?

In looking at newegg, I think the mobo is considered MicroATX, and I think a case like this is what im after smile


actually, i think this one is a little smaller?

If I remember oh so many years ago when I was learning to build computers (of course that's been 20 years ago) I thought that the form factor of mobos was actually printed on the board itself, usually in some corner or edge area. I would check there before I shelled out the money for a new case, just to  make sure I had the right form factor.
