I have a case that my present machine is in right now. The thing is this case has no label or numbers so i don't know much about the case, except its a Mini Tower case Case Depth x Width x Height) Approx. 17.0' x 7.0" x 14.0"

I am rebuilding and purchasing a ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard I am wondering if it will fit in my present case. I don't know if my present case is an ATX or what, I can tell you the board in there now is a MSI PM8M-V Socket 478 Motherboard.

Can anyone help and tell me if the ASUS will fit?

Your current board appears to be a Micro ATX.

If it fits in the case, your micro ATX Asus should also fit. (the mounting holes should line up)

No problem.

The Asus is a little wider, but not much. Unless your current unit is crammed in there with no room to spare, the Asus should drop right in.

Yeah it is kind of tight with cables and such i think i may have to go with a mid tower. I am starting a thread asking for build suggestions i will post the link here when i start it, thanks again!
