Default Help with first PC build..

Right.. First off, the case. I have found a nice case at a reasonable price, but I don't know if the motherboard that I'm going to buy will fit it. It tells me the size of the motherboard, but it doesn't tell me the size of the case's motherboards capacity. Should I buy the case and measure the size of its motherboards capacity, and then search for a motherboard that fits it?

If any of that makes sense at all lol, I would appreciate your comments.

Unless the case is a micro, it will/should hold an ATX mobo. Most mobos are ATX.
