My current computer is a PCV-RS613G, with a P4SD-VL mother board, as I am upgrading my gfx card I find myself needing a new psu thus a new case for the psu to fit into, this is the case I am buying http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811121037

How do I go about taking the mobo out of my old vaio and putting it into my new case? (I am aware that mobo sucks but my budget is only 160 bucks)

First, unplug all the wires that is connected to the mboard(the front pannel wires, the wires from the psu etc). Now remove the screws that is holding the board and lift it out carefully. Then match the mboard's holes with the new case to see where exactly to put the mboard standoffs. After putting in the standoffs you put in the mboard and secure it with the screws. Make sure every standoff match with the mboard holes to prevent short circuits

Now since my mobo has no manual, how do i know where to plug in the wires for the power and stuff, I know where all the PSU stuff goes, I mean the wires that actually turn the computer on

On most mboards you will see pw_sw for the power button, res_sw for reset etc. Take a look at your mobo where the front panel wires is connected and see if there is anything written on the board(stuff like hdd led, pw_sw etc)
