I am wondering if the motherboard will fit in the case... I'm sorry if it is a stupid question, but I don't want to order a part that turns out to be the wrong size ...

Here are the links to the Newegg pages:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Currently, I've sized up with this build, Most of it came from another thread that I asked for help on.


CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU COOLER: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Thanks guys,

Also, if you can check to see if the PSU is good enough, I think it is... But then again, I have no backup proof :) 


Really, I'm mostly worried about the case and motherboard, if there has to be a change, I'd rather get a different case then switch other components. Keep in mind, that this is a tight budget computer, current spec'd, tax and shipping, would total at 538 dollars, would only go a few dollars higher (like 3 :)  )


Thanks,


P.S. I already have a Windows 7 License, and a 3.5" HDD, So, I don't need to worry about those factors.
I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64x License, and a Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 7,200 RPM 3.5" HDD.

There are different form factors for each case/mobo. ATX/MicroATX/MiniATX, and I think there are a couple others.

In the title of the case it says "ATX" so you know it'll fit an ATX motherboard. If you go to "details" and check the "Form Factor" you'll see it fits both "ATX" and "Micro ATX" motherboards.

And since the motherboard's title says "ATX" (which you can confirm by going to its details and checking), you know it is ATX as well.

Hence they'll fit! (as Boiler already said, I was just giving an explantion so he can find out in the future if need be).
