    But what about the ones I saw?
    Which one will be enough?

    Any of the cases you linked would fit your gear listed.

    All three would accommodate your components easily. And if I had to choose out of those, I'd probably go for the Elite 372. But I wouldn't really recommend that.

    The cases that were recommended/mentioned in this thread are similarly priced & have excellent features for the price.
    These cases have a terrific cost to benefit ratio. you should consider it.

    Any case you listed will work fine.
    Your components are efficient, and run cool.
    Buy the one that visually appeals to you, or is the cheapest.

    Is there a problem with reusing your current case?
    Are you limited in your case shopping options?


    All three cases are ATX sized cases. Since your motherboard is M-ATX, you can install it in a more compact case.
    There is little value in a larger size if a smaller case will hold your parts and cool decently.

    As to your ram selection, buy a 8gb kit of 2 x 4gb, not two separate 4gb sticks.
    Proper operation of two different sku's is not guaranteed.

    My old case is a HP Pavilion, bought from 2008.
    My old motherboard is M-ATX also, but I'm afraid it might not fit.
    Can you tell me if it will work?

    Also about the Kingston ValueRAM, it's the same model but buying two sticks of it.

    M-ATX motherboards adhere to a size standard. Your new motherboard will fit.
    It is not the greatest cooling case, but your parts are efficient and cool, so you should be OK if you want to reuse the case.

    I am a fan of smaller cases, and I can recommend the Silverstone TJ08-E, see my sig. It is about $100

    The value ram is fine. But buy the two sticks packaged in one kit. That way, kingston can assure you that they truly match and will support it. A kit like this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139075

    So no trouble installing and using my old HP case?

    What about a Sniper 8GB DDR3 1333? Will this fit/work?
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231417&Tpk=sniper%208gb%20ddr3%201333
  11. Your ASRock H61 is microATX board & your old HP case supports microATX motherboards. So, it should fit.

    Yes, the GSkill sniper would work with your MoBo.

    Yes it will. Even if it doesn't (which is highly unlikely) you can always get a new case ASAP ;)
