I have an older HP model hp d530 mini pc with a dc578av motherboard. I want to see if there are better motherboards that will fit in to the case. But I have no idea how to determine if it is a mini atx, or a micro atx, or whatever. I want a board that has intigrated video that is hd capable and has an hdmi video port.

Also, I think I will need a higher wattage power supply since this one is only 180 watts.

Any help is apreciated.

Google says it's a micro atx board. So any micro atx should fit(obviously you'll need to look around for socket type and such)

Some advice: if you're going to upgrade your mother board and power supply, just buy a new computer. A barebones kit from tigerdirect would be great, and you can keep your hard drive and cards.
