Looks like a mid tower, a dirty one at that. You shouldn't have a problem fitting anything in it.

Is that a Pentium 2 I see? Old school. But yeah, older cases seem to have a crap load of room, not the best airflow, but not everythings prefect.

Just scrub that baby down and make it spotless before your throw in a brand new rig and you should be fine.

Unless of course your going high end, like a 8800GTX.. Then I recommend a case with more vents.
