Hello! I am thinking about upgrading my mobo and maybe my tower too I currently have a Phenom II X2 555 Unlocked and 8GB of ram lying around:

Here's the mobo I plan to buy.
I also want a more spacious tower, preferably from Newegg and don't know what type of tower that would be good for that.

I've bought a mobo in the past, some biostar that was a dud so I'm having some doubts buying another one.

You didn't specify which MB you plan to buy.
And an idea of your budget would be helpful. As would the use for the PC; gaming?
