ok I want to build myself a pc right?, well I know what parts im going to use but I need a Case, I want it to be black with some purple, like the side window with a nice smooth apearence

I found the POWMAX CP0327PL-4 , a cheap case that looks decent with the color svheme i want and has front audio and usb ports

but, heres the thing , is it big enough? I heard that some motherboards are too big to fir in the case, of course they never said which motherboards , I was going to get one made by intel that is supposed to be compatable with the EE 840 proccessor, but someone on this forum suggested that I use an Asus board as there good for over-clocking, i dont know a thing about Asus boards lol but anyway do you think ill have any problems?

and yes, I am using my sig to lure the spiders smile.gif

It says that it is an ATX case so any ATX or smaller board should fit. I have a Pow Max case for my grandaughters computer and they are a little on the flimsy side, looks good but very thin! But then again what do you expect for $26.

cool lol ill have to check that one out

btw as far as room goes, if a motherboard fits but only by 3 or 4 inches, is there any things i should watch out for?

I figure the less room the better the cooling lol

Wrong! bigger cases cool better, much easier to manage air flow.
