as a hobby I have begun replacing parts of my old computer. I replaced the hard drive last year and now have a new CD drive/burner. I also have a new soundcard. How easy is it to go out and get and install a new motherboard? What kind of stuff am I looking for? I also have an old outdated "big box" for all the stuff. Any suggestions on a new box?

Thanks guys!
