Hi Guys!

Got a question.

So, the thing is, I am opting to change my motherboard in 2-3 days as its H77 chipset and CPU is 2500K. I was an idiot to buy it at first place but well, I didn't know a lot of stuff about computers back then.

So, due to shortage of money, I got to settle for Micro ATX Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H.
I have Antec V One case, 8 GB LPDDR3 Corsair Vengeance, Sapphire HD 6850 1 GB, 500 GB + 1 TB HDD, 600W CM RS600 PSU.

Will all this work together? I don't intend to upgrade anything in the system other than motherboard for now and I plan to stick to this supply and a single GPU for a while (maybe even longer, but then I would change motherboard as well).

Thank you.

As a general rule of thumb (and with this specific case as well), a mid tower case can support atx and all lower sizes, i.e. micro atx/itx. The same goes for full towers with full tower cases supporting xl atx and below. So yes, your case and mobo will work together.

Great then.

What about the components? It has x16 PCIE slot which complies to 3.0 standard so the speeds should be optimal in that case. What about everything else?

I am quite sure all of this would work very fine but just wanted to, you know, have 2nd opinion?

Everything is compatible and that motherboard/case will support most if not all gpus in the future. I was under the impression you already owned the majority of the aforementioned components, so what do you want my opinion on?

I do own everything except the new Micro ATX Motherboard.
I just wanted to know if I install everything in the new motherboard and the motherboard into the case, will everything work smoothly?

I guess I got my answer from your last post.

Thank you so much.
