Hello,
I am building a gaming rig and I wanted to know if this case and motherboard would work together.

Yes, the MB will fit in the case because the case is the ATX Full Tower.

And other question is why do you buy the Z68 MB? Keep in mind if you want to use the the 3rd Generation CPU, you are better to buy the Z77/H77/etc 7 series motherboard. For the Z68 you need the 2nd Generation CPU to upgrade the BIOS first then use the 3rd Generation CPU.

I recommend get this ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 for $120 after MIR. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also I put them togetther for comparing and you will see the differences are one more marvell SATAIII and eSATA maybe something else. But you will pay $40 more if you can get the rebate and $28 more if you don't get the rebate. Becasue my friend just get the same one (ASUS P8Z77-V LK ) +i5-3570K from microcenter on BF, he like it and that why I recommend get this.

You will have no problem fitting this motherboard in given case. The case is Full Tower and you will be able to put your motherboard in it.
