I'm saving up to upgrade my cpu, MB, RAM and computer case and have selected some stuff here that I think will work together but I would like your input. First of all for the case I need it where it will fit my ATI 4870 graphics card, I believe it's around 10-14 inches long. Also need a MB with usb 3.0. Also I need input as too what speed RAM I would need. I was wondering if the MB's I picked out can handle this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here is what I like from newegg

Good choice of CPU, and mobos too. (I have a 2600K + AsRock 4 Extreme mobo and it's great so far)

Any mid tower will fit a 4870 Radeon, they are not 10 inches much less anywhere near 14 in) I have a 10.5 inch 570 GTX in mine that has 3/4 inches or so of clearance

I just measured it, yeah it's 9.5 inches. What about my choice of RAM? Would that MB handle it?
