i would like to redo an old ibm aptiva E5D. Can I use the case to build a new computer? Also what kind of motherboard will fit in it?i am new to this and enjoy learning things about computers.
if you buy a motherboard does it come with a heatsink?I don't think it does but just checking.
probably will need to get all new parts because it has intel 400mhz pentium ll processor,100mhz front side bus,64mb sync dram, 8gb hard drive, 2xdvd-rom, 512kb l2 pipeline burst cache,56k(v.90 compatible) data/fax modem,4mb syncgraghic memory, and 2 usb ports. if i can use the modem and what ever it would help on the cost. trying to not spend to much in case i do it wrong. been reading up on building a computer and it sounds like a challenge. any help would be appreciated.
