Yea, excuse my stupid title but I'm wondering how you can figure out to get a chassis for some certain mobos that have to work with certain chassis because of the ports

take this for example: What type of chassis should I get for a mobo like the ASRock 939 (link: http://www.asrock.com/product/product_939Dual-SATA2.htm )

can someone tell me steps or procedures or whatever to find out the mobos like if its ATX microATX and the other types (i know about the measuremetns of it)

It all depends on the form factor. I can tell you've never built a PC before!!!

That mobo is ATX, any case that says its ATX compliant will do (nearly ALL cases)

You will get a backplate with the mobo to fit its ports, simply remove the one from the case and replace it with the one from the new mobo.

Get a nice big ATX case with good quality aluminum if you can. Otherwise any ATX case will do the job and hold your components, or just ly your mobo down on some cardboard.

hmm thats seems to simple, thats why i asked, and yep, i never built a pc before, i just took a comp, removed every part i can remove (not break apart but to remove seperate parts) and put them back together

i found made up a list thats REALLY decent at less than $800**

Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro-SLI Socket 939-->$62
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ "Venice"(Socket 939) -->$170
Antec LifeStyle SONATA II Piano Black Computer Case(it's aluminum =) -->$100
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro Cooling Fan with Heatsink-->$35
Sapphire ATI Radeon X1600XT PCI-Express 16x (of course!) --> $170
Antec TP-II 430 430 Watt ATX12V v2.0 PS-->$85
A-DATA Vitesta 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) System Memory--> $160
**I didn't add shipping and handling...

i already have a CD-RW, harddrive (120gb), and a floppy, suggestions are welcome, a good PCI-Express card that has a good price like that x1600 (Sapphire FYI)
