Default HELP: Need new case but confused (EMERGENCY)

So I bought a GeForce 9800 GTX (graphics card), and a Apevia ATX-AS520W 12V (motherboard) to put into my Dimension C521. I didn't think about the case for it being to small, but I don't really know a site to buy a new case or what case to buy?! PLEASE HELP!

While I don't know a lot about cases, I know is an excellent site for cases and most other computer parts.

If this is the case, it looks pretty slim to me.

What kind of board you got? Most likely I'm guessing you're looking for an ATX case.
Need to update my siggy!

I would get a Rosewill Blackbone from Newegg.
$40.00 with a free shipping promo code

As stated above, Newegg is probably your best bet. You can find some pretty nice cases there, too. is another fine site you might want to look in to.
