I was thinking about making a new gaming computer in the summer and I need some help choosing a motherboard I have been searching and the one I think Im going to get is ASUS Sabertooth P67 B3 TUF Edition Motherboard But the tricky part is I am thinking about buying a Mac pro case and then try to fit it inside, So guys what do you recommend? My budget for a MoBo is $300 I could go up to 350-400

the specs I had in my mind are

GPU havent decides on it yet

Cpu Intel Core i7-2600K

Ram Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9 Vengeance 8GB PC15000 DDR3 RAM - X2 so it would be 16 GB

and what kind of Cooling should I buy ?

Stuffing PC guts into a Mac Pro case is going to be difficult at best. I hope you are pretty good with cutting metal and fabricating mounting posts and such.

The Mac Pros are VERY PROPRIETARY in their layout and design, they look great, but putting the effort into making a PC out of one, makes little economic or performance sense.

If you want a sleek aluminum case, cruise over to NewEgg and look at what Lian-Li has to offer. It will be much cheaper and will work much better.

Otherwise, you mobo, memory, and CPU choices are fine. Good luck!
