I have a old computer from 2009.My motherboard is ATX GA-M52L-S3, graphics card Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT 512mb and my processor is Phenom X4 840. I am not so sure about my power supply but i remember it being Pentium 4 ATX 2.03 but from 2009 and it doesn't have a button turn off/on outside of the case.Just to let you know how old it is.The point of this is so i can be secure when buying a case and a dvd ror.

Hello Zika, and welcome to TSG.

You should be OK with a DVD drive in a separate enclosure with a USB 2.0 connection and is not powered by the computer. It should have its own AC mains power source. Check the DVD drive's specifications to make sure it and any included software is compatible with whatever operating system is running on your computer.

Syntax Fixed - Thanx.

It is a link to the actual motherboard you want to place in the suggested chassis.

{ I am just getting acquainted with this Editor in RTF and BBcode formatting }

I just checked the links to the; ATX Chassis, DVD RW, and the Gigabyte MB all work - now.

The Ggigabyte link was foobar.
