Default New Setup; help plz.

I'm getting ready to build a new system.. not sure what case to go with. Was hoping to get a black case, maybe black/silver.. this will be my first setup but I've been going through the A+ Cert book and wanna get some hands on before taking the exam.

I'm not sure what case would fit all this, but this is the setup. ATX Form Factor.

seems to me that all of it will fit in a midsize/fullsize case. The HD's go eaither in the HD rack (some cases like a Xaser III) or in the drive bays. But all that other stuff like the drives go in the drive bays. You just screwn them in... um the CPU goes on the mobo, the mobo goes on the bottom of the case.... i dunno what else to explain lol. It seems very simple when u build it.

Intel 2.8GHZ 800mhz FSB
Western digital 120 GB HD
Western digital 40 GB HD
Asus P4p800s motherboard
1280MB of ram
Xaser III Red and Blue case

Yea, putting it together doesnt make me worry. I just dont understand the measurements etc. that these cases are trying to portray, but I was able to get some help and found out and selected a case. Thanks
