Is this Mobo mATX?

And would it fit in any of these cases?
Cases:

And last of all would this cooler fit any of these cases?

If this is your board then yes it'll fit fine. It's micro-ATX G45 chipset... so don't worry all is well.

Ya, I think that's it, the reason I'm asking is because I'm first going to buy the case. Then I'll save for the mobo, processor, RAM, cooler, etc. as I don't have much money right now. If you don't mind me asking, what case would you recommend?

Erm, don't laugh at me, but I kind of like this case:
http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/crafted_series/phantom
Would everything be compatible? I know the mobo probably will because the specs say E-ATX, ATX, MICRO-ATX, and BABY AT (What's BABY AT?). But what about the fan? Thanks, you've been really helpful.

That's a nice case, everything will fit fine.

Baby AT? Not sure but it's probably an acronym for "baby" ATX. Nevertheless don't worry about it.

Ok so that's cool. So is there anything else I've got to worry about when picking a case? Because if not then I'll order the case :D

just try to get cases made of steel, offer cable management, mobo-cutout, upgradability, etc... and read reviews. Stick with known companies like - corsair, nzxt, antec, etc and you'll be fine.

Ok, thanks. I've read a few reviews on the NZXT Phantom and it performed well enough. So I'll probably get it but I was wondering when I inevitably upgrade my motherboard will USB 3.0 work with the Phantom? Because the MSI motherboard I was thinking about buying has usb 3.0 but the case has usb 2.0. How would that work out? I'm a little bit confused... :??: 
Also I'm confused because one review says it has a molex connector and I don't know if I have molex on my psu...
Here's the model number...
AGI-U580UB
Sorry for being a nuisance :??:

Typically if the board comes with a USB 3.0 header they'll have a front bracket with the ports that you install into one of the front 5.25" external expansion bays. Pretty easy, actually easier to install than a cd/dvd drive intself...
