Re: [vox-tech] Mobo Question

well the only thing i don't know is what the different cases look like and
what mobo's can fit into em and stuff like that.  I really want to build my
own computer and the only thing i don't know already is mobo and cases.
This would just be to have a computer in my room again (the last one decided
to die on me...stupid ibm aptivas)
