What should I get?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This will be my first ground-up build. I am looking for a budget case for (what will be) my father's computer.
I would like it to have built in fans.

I was thinking This Motherboard

If I have a motherboard with 4 slots, and a case with 7 (both ATX) then it will work, correct?

I have to say that when someone's first question is, will this fit? then I have to cringe at that person building a system.

What's your budget? What are his needs? Need more info.

Well, the MoBo you listed is MicroATX, so you're going to want a case that supports MicroATX obviously. The standard, which most people tend to use, is ATX. But it doesn't really matter, it's pretty much preference.

Budget eh? Cooler Master is known for having quality yet affordable budget cases. This one here will do you/your father great.
