I can't tell what case that is, but by the number of PCI Slots at the back it looks like a Mid-ATX Tower, meaning that any of the boards you listed will/should fit in the case.

What are the dimensions of the case? If you are using newegg.com it should tell what they are.

Are you going to get a new CPU and everything? Or you're using the CPU from your current PC.

It will fit, just for future reference, if you're on newegg, you can go to the product you're looking for, in this situation a case, and go down to where it says "Motherboard Compatibility" and it will say which size it is compatable with.

This is the order of ATX (BTX) sizes (from smallest to largest)
  1. Flex ATX
  2. Micro ATX
  3. ATX
  4. BTX

That fan is an 80mm, and you should get another case. Spend the extra money on the case, trust me, its worth it.

Nothing against ATi, but, their chipsets aren't that good. Other than the crossfire ones of course.

I think you should drop the 754 idea, and go w/ 939, although Socket AM2 is about to be released, their processors won't be under $300, the difference between the 754 3000+ and the 939 3200+ is $40, and you can find a 939 Mobo for about the same price.

Well, the 1st 3 numbers of each that I said (754, 939), those are Socket numbers

Socket 754 are the motherboards you chose
Socket 939 are the motherboard you should've bought had you been a gamer.

But no games? Ok, thats an entirely different story.

In that case. I think you should go w/ this:

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103606
MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138268
^^ Combo ^^
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129152

Registered (sometimes called "buffered") memory modules have additional components between the SDRAM modules and the system's memory controller. They place less electrical load on the memory controller and allow single systems to remain stable with more memory modules than they would otherwise. Registered memory is slightly slower than unregistered/unbuffered memory, and more expensive as well, so it is usually found only in applications where the need for scalability and stability outweighs the need for speed and a low price (servers, for example). Registered memory should not be confused with ECC memory; although many server-grade memory modules are both ECC and registered, there are registered non-ECC modules and non-registered ECC modules.
So basically the opposite of that.
