    Buy a motherboard that fits your tower. Why are you looking for a packard bell board :confused: ?

    By the size of the case your fitting it into... ATX or mATX
    *Some larger cases fit either sized board
    What's the psu your using now? I'm sure it would power the board but whether or not it'll be sufficient for your new hardware is another thing.

    for instance, some older psu's don't have pcie connectors but deppending on the graphics card you don't need it.
    check newegg or tigerdirect for a barebones kit, you're probably better off with that unless you have a facination with your tower :p
