No, it will not fit without severe mods. About the only things you can use are the A drive, CD rom and HD eventhough on the last two items (A TheTechIsIn quote here) I would highly recommend against it. CDroms are much faster and cheap than then- same with HD's.

Another free 2c by me. No controversy.
Please stand up.

In the compaq? a screaming 550. You are at the top end right now. Cases are cheap, too- you can get a p4 case with PS for under 60 bucks.

Go for it! Don't forget the new RAM and Vid card you will need. Oh yeah, and the modem.

Upgrading is an on going project and never free.

Well said, old chap! BTW, wisefurn1, get as fast a processor and M/B as you can afford and use high-quality memory.
