    hi

    i have a couple of older hp pavilions and 1 sony vaio ( i cant remember the models atm) but assuming that they are atx form factor, can i still use it on the bigger case and more powerful psu's or they r built kinda proprietary format? they were bought long time ago when u buy a system like that, they dont give u the mobo specs n stuff on the manual like when u buy the mobo itself

    i know i can always get a new and improved mobo but that comes with getting another cpu; and since i'm learning to build computer (painfully slow learning process), i want to play aroud with the older parts that i have just sitting there

    thank u for your time
