    If it's a Packard Bell then im going to guess your not likely to get a new mobo in there comfortably and if its old then its prolly going to be AT form which are thin on the ground now days. You can pick up new cases with psu's for around £20-30

    The hard thing will be finding a mobo that the celeron will fit in. Im going to say its doubtful you'd find one brand new. Try on ebay m8
