Default IBM A50 mod


while i sort out the lcd stem issue, i just happened to stumble upon an ibm thincentre a50 case, which housed an outdated p4 2.8 ghz, and 1 gig of memory with 40 gigs of hdd space.....

Since the p4 hogs good amount of power, i decided to get rid of it, and now i am thinking of putting my main rig components into the case..(Yeah, the case does look professional and nice!!!)

However, i observed, while giving off the components to a scrap dealer, that the motherboard was of a different shape...it mentioned m-atx, but it was different than what my gigabyte motherboard or intel motherboard looks like....

So, has anyone previously put a different motherboard into the case???

Here are the components that i use....

Gigabyte sm2 mobo
intel c2q q8400
coolermaster heatsink g15-dp cooler
4X2 EVM strontium 1333 RAM
160X2 seagate barracuda hdd's
sapphire ati radeon HD 6450 ddr3 1 gb gpu

.......if anyone has any idea of the thinkcentre case that i am talking about, could you please tell me if it is possible for me to port my existing hardware into the case????

If it is possible, then i could cut a window in the side panel and all........!!!

Thanks and cheers

here is the case:
