  1. Hello, I have some questions on my IBM ThinkCentre A50p 8432-96U with an Intel 865G Chipset

    1. Is it possible to upgrade my current Power Supply from 230 watts to something along the lines of 500 Watts?

    2. Am I able to remove the Motherboard and place it in this new case? XG Viper Blue and Black 10-Bay ATX Window Case w/500W PSU

    Seeing as that case comes with a 500 Watt ATX Power Supply

    3. Will my Motherboard work with it? ex. Wont have any issues/fry my Motherboard

    4. What Form Factor is the IBM Thinkcentre A50p case and the Power Supply? ex. ATX, Micro ATX

    5. Am I able to purchase a higher wattage Power Supply, must it be purchased from IBM or can I purchase from anywhere as long as it meets the form factor?

    To make a long story short, I know this is a business PC/Office PC but im a struggling College Student and would like to turn this PC into a temporary Gaming PC, plan on buying an Nvidia 6800 for it, will this work/fit?
