Is it possible to transplant all of my pc components into another case ( bit by bit obviously )keeping the same configuration withought the hassle of having the motherboard re-detect all the hardware and reinstall motherboard drivers, format the HDD & reinstall Windows and software ?

Will the pc 'think' it is still in the original case ?

Done it myself

Providing you do mean 'ALL' the components (Mobo, Disks etc.) The system will not know anything about the case.

I assume that you are just going for a nicer/prettier case rather than any functional changes.

Thankyou cga,

Yes I'm going to transplant into an Antec Sonata because I'm fed up with the constant droning of my noisey £10 Casecom.

Scalpel please nurse...

Same inner working, just a new skin to hang it in..

Now who do i want to look like..Hmmmmm?
