Difficulty in getting the right pc case

I just bought a PCChips 810lmr motherboard which has onboard sound, graphics and modem. I thought I could use my existing case but can't. I think I need a microATX but having difficulty tracking down a cheap and cheerful one. Any help. Is it a tower or desktop?

Not sure about these cases at all on second thoughts. Look like tower cases and US suppliers.
Just ignore.

Most (empty) cases are pretty standard, but why can't you use your old one?

Hi, You will find that the old case is an 'AT' case where the ports exit under the PSU. The 'ATX' case ports exit on the side. Unless you get your tin snips out and do a bit of surgery an 'ATX' motherboard will not fit into an 'AT' case. Cheers, Bill
