I bought an AsRock Z77 Pro3 motherboard. I am about to order a case but the size of the MB worries me. It's quite big: 12" x 7.6" (305mm x 193mm) so I want to make sure that this case will be big enough:

So is the MB going to fit?

Also, I bought SSD, i5 3570K, RAM, Video Card. So other than the case I only need to buy a PSU and maybe a DVD player. For PSU I am considering this:

So is this going to be a good system without issues. Do you think PSU is strong enough for this system? I would also appreciate any other advices about extra parts and DVD RW.

I advise getting a 650w power supply something like this will be fine:

Though I would try spending a extra bit of cash and getting a fully modular PSU

If you are going to do sli might as well just get a 750w now

That case would be fine though it would also be not depending on your graphics card

I wouldn't cheap out on the case because airflow is also important so that your rig stays cool!

What graphics card did you buy?

The video card is Sapphire Radeon 6850. I am not a hardcore gamer and I don't think I will overclock this PC anytime soon, so does case matter that much in that case?

Can I do SLI with Radeon or is it just for nVidia cards?
