Well that board should be ATX Form Factor and you just get a case that says it fits all standard ATX Form motherboards. Mind you don't get a micro-ATX standard as that's a smaller board setup obviously from the name

there are only two or three common mobo sizes: ATX, ATX mini, and maybe some other weird one (apple may make their own size, not sure)

You don't want a mini-atx case, you want an ATX Form factor case as that's what your motherboard is and even if it is mini or micro-atx you still might want to upgrade in the future. Get a mid-tower ATX Form Factor case.

Thats a good cpu. I recomend getting the Mid tower case plus a Thermaltake Volcan11 Xasier edition and OC the cpu to 2.3ghz. I did that in my old system and worked really good and was completely stable. Also before you do that make sure it is a Barton core.
