your motherboard will fit into all case stating that they are ATX

xgbox cases look a bit tacky to me, apart from there server cases but they don't seem to have anything special to make them an actual server

Ok, but is everything on that list good, including the fan you told me to get?

And should I get this then?:

its an ok case got sufficient cooling and quite nice looking you may have to buy a blue light though to get the effects they have in the photos as only a green cathode is included. Reviews by previous newegg buyers say that the panels are cheap and easily breakabl and the case is huge which is no surprise as it is a full tower so you may want to check the dimensions of the space you have compared to the dimensions of the case

again that case is huge so check space available. airflow should be adequate not the greatest perhaps use a 5.25" bay adapter to add an extra fan

Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

this case here is a steal specially with the rebate.

Im not going to lie though in the pc community its more overatted than an ipod but hey ipods work so if you want to go a safe route i say you get this case. I only recommends things i wold buy, i really don't care if its overatted just wanted to give the heads up if you care about such things.

those parts are great except the hdd is a little small in capacity but if thats all the gbs you need then place the order.

I personally hate the antec 900 because everyone seems to have one but it is a good case

Ok, thanks.

One more thing:

Now that you've mention it, it's a bit too small. Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3160815AS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

How about that?
