Will this motherboard work well?

I plan on building a gaming PC and I have every thing else decided but the motherboard.

Here is my list of parts on Pc Part picker (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/At30)

Also I want to know if the motherboard fits the case.

  1. any reason for picking up P series Intel cpu?
    get a better power supply
    you didnt include the case so I can't comment on that. general rule is if you go regular atx you can fit it in full or mid tower
  2. Maybe OP want the intel Quad-Core CPU. But anyway, get the PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007657%204808%204801&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=58|17-139-027^17-139-027-TS%2C17-371-031^17-371-031-TS

    Well, first of all I'm on a tight budget. Trust me I would love to get a quad core 3570 but even though it's $40 more I still am trying to keep it below $700 in total (monitor as well)

    Secondly That processor can handle battlefield 3 and crysis on full settings so I'm fine with that.

    Lastly, the case I plan on getting is.... (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156252) (it was in the list if I remember)

    Oh and the power supply was recommended by someone else. I originally intended on a 500W PSU but he said that that one was better so idk.
  4. To buy which case is the personal taste and choice. But the rules are: Cooling (how many fans), bottom mounted PSU, size, case material (steel or aluminum), cable management , drive bay or side window.

    In the case you post that has the $10 shipping, so it will cost more, if you can one with free shipping. Anybody likes the free.

    The PSU I recommend they are $30, and the 430W one is $34, they are 80plus or bronze too. Why not?

    I like the zalman z11 plus, Cheapish and with features expected on much more expensive motherboards.
    As for a motherboard if you are on a really tight budget get an Asrock B75 Pro-3 M or plain Pro-3
