What motherboard and chip should I get to upgrade an Aptiva 535, model 2144-67p?  Does it need to be rebuilt into a tower?  Will it need a new cooling fan?

The Aptiva line uses a proprietary motherboard so running over to "Motherboards Express" or wherever will not get you anything that will upgrade that system directly.  I'd recommend that you get a motherboard, video card, and a new case and re-use all of the rest of your stuff.  The Aptiva either uses an on-board video section or an older non-PCI video card.  You should be able to get a Pentium 200/MMX CPU, motherboard, and a PCI video card for US$300 or so.  You can re-use your hard disk, floppy, keyboard, mouse, sound card, and cdrom.

Talk about brief and to the point.  That was exactly what I needed to know and it was simply put so that even I could grasp it.  Hats off to experts-exchange in general and jhance in particular.
