What processor you have ? To know what mobo you need.
Case COOLER MASTER HAF 912 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... in this case you can fit the biggest GPU on the market because the HDD cage from the middle can be removed.

Hi There, i plane to put a i5 or i7 cpu but not want to buy the most expensive one and the case can be cheap and cheerful. i need to make sure the motherboard has all the connectors that the PSU has.

thanks

^ even better than my choice, lol. Take this one.

Also, do you need a processor too? Or do you already have an i3, i5 or i7?
