    Hello,

    I just received a Mac Pro (early ones) computer, with all internals.
    I am not mentally prepared to cut it up to make a PC with mATX on it yet (i got it from my grandma, and she thinks i will use it "as is"... and you dont want to make grandma angry...)

    I've seen mods on the PSU, that you can take out the PSU from the original casing and put it in the MacPro-case.
    And ive seen you can buy some sata-connector to make it work from a PC-motherboard ?
    What i actually want to know, is if you can place a motherboard in the case, and through the slots on the back, wire monitor/usb/etc peripherals into the case? It wont look pretty but atleast i havent cut the metal... :)

    Also, is it possible to keep the original powerbutton+usb+audio in the front? on a PC motherboard.

    Thanks for reading, hope you can clarify stuff for me.
