That was my thoughts too.
First, assembling computers is not the best idea - economically it's cheaper to buy a system and add to it (if needed).

Not having to re buy the case, drives, videocard, power supply, saves big money on a simple motherboard/CPU/memory upgrade. Not getting a cheap motherboard is priceless.

The data drives on the old computer were in a RAID array. The new computer does not have that feature - so just moving the HDs was not an option in any way.

That's a worry. A non RAID backup would be a very good idea in case of motherboard/RAID controller failure. I have 1 RAID, 5 non RAID copies. Presumably you need to reuse those drives that were in an array.

As to moving a C drive...I suppose it's possible. But when I replaced the mobo

If you changed a faulty motherboard out you DID just build your own machine, in effect. Same work as someone just upgrading but you couldn't choose your parts.
