My current motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H its dimensions are 12.0" x 9.6"

the motherboard i want to get is a Asus P8B75-V and its dimensions are 12" x 8.6"

will the asus motherboard fit in the case i have now? they are both ATX boards.

Do i need to get a new HDD or wipe my current one if im installing a new motherboard and cpu?

PS. this is going to be my first build, my current computer is a custom build but it was built by my friend who no longer lives near me.

My current build is:

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H
GPU: GTS 450
CPU: AMD Athlon II 4 640
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb 1600mhz
PSU: 500watt 80+ (silver i think)
HDD: 1TB

I am going to be upgrading to:

MOBO: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007R...rt_title_1
GPU: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-N660TF2GD5-D...61&sr=1-10
CPU: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-3-30GHz-Gr...279&sr=8-1
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb 1600mhz
PSU: 500watt 80+ (silver i think)
