Default Computer case?

Can this computer case fit all these components? If so, what are the advantages of this versus a full tower? Thanks in advance.

Here are the specs (thanks GhOsT1321): click here

Yes it will fit all of those components.
The advantages of a mid tower vs a full tower case are...
Usually cheaper
Smaller, more portable

The disadvantages would be...
A full tower is easier to work in
Has more options (ie radiator support)
Usually has better airflow
Edit: a full tower also tends to support larger motherboards, ex. extended ATX.

And the biggest thing, more HDD bays.

Good catch. However, I rarely see the more mainstream brands of cases have less than 4 hdd bays, many have 6 or more (the case ROFL_A_PIGGY linked included).

Hm, I can't seen to access any of the links you listed, Newegg is acting up. What RAM did you pick? Also, don't go with the Intel board, go with this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131771

Another thing, if this is for gaming, drop to the 2500k, and upgrade to a 560ti GPU.

Thanks for the suggestion.

8GB RAM (4x2GB) $47

EDIT: do you mean get the core i5 instead of i7?
