Default 2 Concerns..

Whats up guys,new comer to the forums, looking forward to learning a lot here..ok, I've two questions:

1) Can any motherboard fit in any computer case? I have a dell optiplex 170L motherboard,and was wondering if it will fit inside of a dell optiplex 760 case? If not then how do you determine what kind of case to get for your motherboard..?

2) I'm looking forward to painting an old gateway tower I have,just for fun,..what kind of spray paint, materials,ect. will be needed?

Hi, welcome to the site.

1. No motherboards will not fit in to any PC. Generally there are a few types of motherboard "AT, ATX, Micro ATX" and you need to purchase a case that matches the form of your motherboard. But with some companys such as DELL / IBM / HP they develope there own custom made motherboards so generally you wont be able to remove them and place them in to another case.

not to sure about point 2
