Here's my situation. I bought a Core 2 Duo, I bought a Dell Optiplex 780 3NVJ6 MotherBoard.

This is a build i'm working on for low end gaming. Kind of an enthusiast side project in a way. Something i could keep cheap. Now, my issues is, after ordering the motherboard i noticed the orientation of the PCI slots in relation to the I/O panel area. It's pretty obvious that this motherboard may not work in a regular case due to it's orientation.

What cases could i buy that would host this motherboard properly? Would i HAVE to buy the Optiplex 780 case to fit this? Help a brother out!

Thanks everyone.

yeah. that's a board built for a specific case. i'm afraid you're stuck or will have to make your own case.

I was afraid of that. Looks like i am unknowingly hopping into the modding game now. Time to buy a dremel set
