  1. Hi, and thank you for having such a GREAT site!

    I recently ordered a new power supply and Graphics card for my computer, and when I went to put the card into my mobo, it didn't fit. (My mobo only supported PCI not PCI-Express,. Stupid me huh?)

    My computer is a Compaq Presario S4000NX, with 1GB of RAM, Geforce FX5500 GF card, and an Intel Celeron 2.4 processor.

    Since my NEW graphics card didn't fit, it is a XFX Geforce 7600GT BTW, I am going to completely upgrade my computer. The main question I had, was "Will an ATX ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2 Socket 939 fit in my S4000NX case?"

    That is my MAIN problem, because I don't want to get this, and it NOT work as well. Is my computer case big enough for this Mobo??

    If I will be able to actually fit this stuff in, my specs will be as follows:

    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Single-Core

    RAM: 1GB, 2 X 512 Kingston (184-pin 3200) RAM Sticks

    MotherBoard: ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2 Socket 939 ULi M1697 ATX AMD Motherboard

    Graphics Card: Geforce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16

    The motherboard I am buying is here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813157087

    The Graphics Card here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150140

    This is my totally awesome case! (Sarcasm) right here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=329399&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

    The AMD Athlon 64 3800+ is on Ebay, so I am kind of stressed on time, so if you could help me ASAP, I'd VERY much appreciate it. (4 days as of right now until it ends)

    Oh and I don’t want to have to use a dremel or anything like that..

    Thank you so much

    no, it will not fit.

    the 939SLI32-eSATA2 is a full size ATX motherboard, your case can only fit a microATX motherboard.

    I have never seen an SLI motherboard by any brand in the microATX format, but that doesn't mean they don't make one.

    also, you'll need to buy a good power supply for the system that you're planning to build, the crappy compaq PSU just won't do.

    My advice to you would be to buy an ATX case, a reputible brand PSU.. not some generic garbage brand. since you're already buying your CPU from ebay, just buy an ATX case as well (you can get them for about $30, get one without a PSU if you can because the ones that come with the cases are almost always garbage)

    Will a Mid-Tower support such a Motherboard? It should, and from the pictures, it seems to be.. I just want to make sure before I blow my money on something that wont work..


    Also.. I am completly rebuilding my computer, still using the same drives and ROMs, but differnent Mobo, GF card, and Power Supply. Will I have to reinstall Windows XP on my new computer, even thought I am still using the same drives that have WINXP on them?
