I guess what I was really tring to say is I needed to find out what kind of motherboard I have in order to transfer it to another case. I recently have done some research and found out that I have a mATX motherboard. I plan on going with the coolmaster enforcer case (which I think is BA) I also was going to upgrade my PSU from 220w to 450w. Any way thanks for your help.

If you think that I should change something or I have something wrong please let me know.

The motherboard in the original case, will fit in that Coolermaster Enforcer case. For the power supply, something like thiswould do the trick.
