  1. Antec 300 is frequently on sale at newegg. It's available everywhere. It will probably be around $40 shipped on black friday somewhere. Excellent quality and value.
  2. just to clarify and keep my options open:

    18.30" x 8.10" x 18.00" are the dimentions im looking for to properly fit my new asus motherboard?

    ^those are the dimentions of the antec 300

    (thank you by the way, very fast response!)
  3. ?????????????????????????????????

    more responses would be very helpful

    i like a wide array of intel
  4. 12" x 8.8" is slightly smaller than standard ATX dimensions which will fit in most cases, just make sure in the case description under the motherboard compatibility field it list ATX or Standard ATX, if it does that board will mount in it. The size of the case is less important than if it has the correct mounting holes for the board.

    Also, yes the Antec 300 will mount a standard ATX board, i can vouch for that.
