That might work for you. If you want to tinker a lot, you wouldn't have to be constantly opening up the case.

You might learn something.

Then buy a case later on when you can afford it.

Your dog or cat might dig walking around on the plywood too.

LMFAO

You wouldn't.

Your choices are:

Buy a micro ATX board.

Buy another case that will take an ATX motherboard.

Stay with your current case and motherboard.

Don't use a case.
JINX! what he said
Let's just build a new computer and use the old one for backup. $$$
