    After having some rebooting problems with my PC, I'm thinking of replacing my case and PS to something with more cooling and a PS with more juice........is there anything I should worry about if I do this?? Is it just a matter of unplugging stuff and putting it back together in the new case??
    Any advice when I do this??

    Yea, nothing to worry about. It's easy to do. Just make sure that the new case you buy is the right type for your motherboard.

    AT and ATX form factor motherboards have different types of power connecters and rear conection layouts. Like Tim said, Just match the motherboard form factor with the case and power supply form factor. Also, the new Athlon processors want you to use an "Athlon approved" power supply. If you aren't using an Athlon processor, you don't have to worry about that.
