    Couldn't you just put an ATX power supply in it?You might have to modify the case to accept it,but you'll have to do some work to be able to put an ATX mobo in anyway(and that's the fun-ain't it?).

    thing is, with AT... you got either a stick connecting to the power switch then to the powersupply, or a cable going from PSU to motherboard.

    with ATX, no two things are connected, they are both connected on the board.

    so you'd have to get that sorted first

    then theres also the issue that your board supports ATX
