Hi,
I was wondering if it was possible to use a Playstation 2 case and mod it into a PC. Is it big enough for a video card/motherboard/ram etc? Thanks

I don't think it is. A PS2's case isn't big enough for a PC power supply, and motherboards are usually longer than a PS2.

What's the best tool to use for cutting precision holes or windows out of a pc case? Thanks

Most likely a Black and Decker drill of some sort.

most motherboards are ATX or micro ATX which are bigger than the PS2 case.

best tool for modding cases is a dremel

Do you know any specific things to look for in buying a dremel? And how much do those things usually cost?

Depends on the model. I spent about $30 on my Dremel, plus more in bits for it, but there are fancier ones with more features. The cheapest ones are one or two speed only models. The one I have is variable speed. The better ones are variable speed, have a flexible neck (about 4 feet long) that you put the bits in, and a foot pedal for speed control. Those are $100 and up.

Check here (http://www.dremel.com/html/home_fr.html) for the various models.

What exactly is a dremel? It looks like some kind of sander or something. It cuts wholes? Also, is it easy to use?

What's are the main differences from a Micro ATX and ATX motherboard? Is it just the different amount of PCI/RAM slots or are there certain features or compatibility issues? Thanks
