I have have the dimensions of my motherboard, 12in x 9.75in(10in).
I know I'd be better off with a full but just wondering if you all think I might be okay with a mid.

I like the coolermaster 360, even though it's a plain looking case. It can be used upright or on it's side for tight spaces. The Xion 100 gaming on newegg's main page is also a good value. My personal favorites are made by antec, but I never buy them unless they're on sale at Fry's or newegg.

This is my first build in at least 6 or 7 years, and my first gaming build.
Thanks for the quick reply.

12x 9.75 is a standard ATX sized mobo and will fit in any small/mid/full tower case.

Personally I prefer a full tower case simply because of the extra room it provides, and I recommend the Coolermaster HAF 932 or the Coolermaster 840. Both are great cases with plenty of air flow, cable management, and plenty of room for any and all components.

Good luck!

I have used several inwin cases in my time and have recently settled on the Antec 900. The fans keep the system cool and there's scalability to outlive my current SLI/C2D setup.

Have a look at this case, the Cooler Master 690. Its the one I used for my latest build. Its not a fancy looking case, but it has awesome airflow and plenty of places ready to put extra fans on which makes it perfect for any PC, especially a gaming PC where you might need the extra airflow to keep your system cool.
