Both links go to the case.

The motherboard will fit if its an ATX motherboard. It doesnt matter what type of CPU you have. What matters is the form factor of the motherboard. ie: AT vs ATX vs BTX vs mATX

99% of cases and motherboards are ATX. you'd have trouble finding a motherboard and case that didn't work together (unless you get a micro ATX case)

I would have gone with a MSI Neo-4 motherboard and a 6800GS but anyway your build looks pretty good, although I would have just went with the regular XP Home.

How much did the 6800GT's cost you? Because 6800GS's are cheaper then any current 6800GT's I've seen and they perform just the same.

Personally I would have went with a 7800GT (300 dollars) and then later SLI them. You get all the goodies of the geForce 7 series, but 6800GTs in SLI should last you a while.

IMO, you should of bought 2 6800GS's because their just as fast, but cheaper than 6800GT's.

EDIT: you also should of bought an X-Fi instead of an audigy 2.
