Default Can this case handle a normal size ATX mobo

can this case handle a normal atx mobo that would have at least 3-4 PCI slots ? if it can I am going to put a socket 370 mobo in there along with 1 ghz p3 processor that should hold me over until I can secure a job and take my A+ certification exam and get a better mobo and processor.

Well, the title of the product says "Micro ATX" so I would have to say no it can't handle a full size board... Check out they have some pretty decent (and cheap) boxes


Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70 LUX rgb
NZXT Source 530 / i7-8700K / Corsair H100i v2 / ASRock Z370 Taichi
SM951 M2 256GB / 850 evo 1TB / Seagate 2TB / WD 2TB
2x16GB Vengeance LPX 3000 / nvidia GTX 1080 ti / evga SUPERNOVA P2 850W

Thanks Nukem for your help, but I don't like the site and what they have to offer it seem's like 60% of their cases don't come with a power supply and I don't feel like looking around all day to find a power supply for one of their cases plus their prices are a joke....

I think I found what I was looking for:

foxconn barebone case at newegg will cost me 76.99
the duron processor which is 1.6ghz will cost 30- $38
the memory which DDR-333/400 will cost 28.00
and the hard drive which I probably get later 80gig will cost 30
the dvd-rw+- drive will go inside the case along with my dvd-cdrw combo and 40 gig will go inside of it if I wait until later to get a bigger hard drive. do you think this a good setup pc ? also keep in mind that I can replace the amd CPU something much more higher or put in socket 775 and put a P4 in there.

the total price comes to without the hard drive 142.99
