I'm guessing it's a micro-ATX system so you would need a case that supports that specification. If it's an mini-ITX you'd need a case that supports that. You can usually tell by the number of expansion slots on the back or by looking at the motherboard.

You may also need a new power supply if the current one doesn't fit easily in the new case.

One other thing to be careful of is any proprietary connections that they use.
it has 2 expansion slots pci express x16, pci express x1 and its a micro atx and what psu would you recommend ?
Hello ashabellenar and welcome to TSF,

Is this what the right side of your case looks like?

yes thats what it looks like.
Your computer likely uses the "BTX" form factor then. It is not compatible with a standard ATX case.
okay? do you have any ideas on what could be done? is it possible to upgrade the case?
hey, i had an old big case that it seemed it would work and it did only the psu its too small and i have the case upside down because the psu isn't being held by anything i was wondering if this psu would work it has the connectors the cd rom and the hard drive uses (sata) anyway here's the link - LOGISYS Computer PS550ABK 550Watts ATX12V Power Supply With SATA and 20/24 Pin connectors.
