Re: Mother board compatability with older cases
The case will probably work just fine ... whatever model it really is. I'm guessing that the "Antex 450 watt" is a reference to your power supply .... not the actual case. HOWEVER .... odds are good that your new motherboard will require a 24 pin connection that will require you to buy a new power supply unit (PSU) if you want a truely stable system. In addition to that issue there is the fact the 450 watt is just not enough power for a lot of modern systems. ....Bottom line: the case will probably work but the power supply will likely need to be replaced if you are building a modern power hungry system.
Edit .... I gotta learn to type faster ...
