is this a laptop if so it could be expesive just to swap casing around 160.
if its a desktop then no problem just buy another pc case

Please reduce your sig to the max of five lines, if you don't, I'll do it, suggestion; double up some items!
Thanks. [Mod]

Why does that matter? btw... assembler... shorten your sig... only up to 6 lines... or the mod's will have to do it themselves... yeah. No offense, but it's CF rules. Oh yeah, recon 16, it depends. Is the mobo screwed on or has it been welded in (or any other inmovable substance). because, if it's just screwed in, you can move it. But if it's welded or anything else, you're screwed.

Either way, it depends like jac006 said. You know, instead of going through all that trouble, you can just buy an external CD drive

eh eh?
