I am looking to buy a new case for my computer but am so confused on what the various things mean. I am not sure if I need a "full tower", ATX, or micro-ATX or whatever.
Here are my specs:
Computer: Gateway FX4710
Motherboard: (according to CPU-Z) gateway g33m05g1
RAM: 6GB DDR 2 PC 5300 (No clue what this means)
CPU: Gore 2 Quad Q9300
I upgraded my videocard from an NVIDIA 9800GT to ATI 5770.
I upgraded my power supply from 400 watts to 650 watts.
Windows 7 Home
Case is: 17 inches long
16 inches tall
7 inches wide.
I was looking at cases on newegg.com but am so lost on what form factor to get.
ATX stands for Advanced Technology Extended, and it is a standard that was developed in the mid-nineties from the original AT-standard that came from IBM in the 80s, and was built from the XT standard.
You can look up Computer Form Factors here if you want.
