Help with form factors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
First of all, I'm a noob with this stuff, so any help would be great. I need a new motherboard and was looking at this upgrade kit:

This is my current motherboard:

I would obviously like to get something that would fit in my case. My case is big, I just wonder about the form factor, and would the USB connections, keyboard, mouse etc (don't know what you call that part of the motherboard) would fit.

Thanks for any help.

The USB connections (also called the I/O area) would fit perfectly fine in there, but you might have an issue with the addon slots at the bottom.

How many addon slots does the back of your case have? If it's seven, then you should be perfectly fine. Otherwise, you're going to have issues fitting it.

It depends on your case. If it is a Micro atx case(smaller) then you will need a MID or FULL tower case. Check the back panel and see how many slots you have. I think a mid tower has 7 slots.

I'm sorry, but what do you mean by slots? I have 4 USB slots?
