  2. haha yeah just trying to get it exact =D and thanks for the info

    do you know any case that's compatabile with my specs?
  3. You have an atx motherboard so any atx case will work. I'm not too familiar with what case is best. Someone else can hopefully answer that
  4. you could look it up on newegg?;) I'll look for some atx cases that're cheaper then that one and hopefully better looking :)

    EDIT: just looked at newegg all the nice atx cases are really expensive $100+ :l I although I've seen a nice raider case but it has 4 eggs because of ports issues things like that worry me...>:(
