Default Ready To Order - One Last Problem

Hi, okies, first of all thanks to MasterJason for helping me with this build, and thanks to neosteve too for his general help with some issues.

Well to put it simply my finger is hovering over the place order problem. Now then before i do this want to make sure everything is going to fit together. I don't want to go buying a case that is not going to house all the components (there's a lot of components).

Now then, as i have mentioned in previous posts i have never actually built my own PC before, which is why i am having doubts about housing issues. A few months back i bought this book:

'Haynes - Build your own Computer'

So having got my final list of components i decided to take another browse thru it (already read it cover to cover) and im a little concerned with regards to connecting all the components to the MotherBoard etc, and whether there are enough '4-pin' sockets or whether the MoBo will fit in the case - my book mentioned something about 'ATX' and 'BTX' and sizes relating to these, but i cant seem to see much relating to this on the sites.

I have spent the best part of the last two hours going through all the websites were i am buying the components and comparing it to the book i have in front of me.

So i'm gonna beg for your help please! Although i really want to get this ordered, i want it to be right before i actually order it. Below are the links to the components i am buying in some sort of order.
