    Well you shouldn't choose your board depending on the case you're getting.;)

    Could you give us an idea of the budget you have & what you'll be using the PC for.

    Absoulutley Diduo:

    The Computer will be used strictly for gaming Purposes.

    I have a budget just on the board of about $125.00 - $150.00.

    Diduo. The reason i am having problems with choosing my board when i get the case, is because , on the site that i bought it from:

    http://www.circotech.com/xiishtrwiteb.html

    it says that the board can only be maxed out to :Max. Motherboard size: 12" x 10" ( Standar ATX).

    Does this help?

    Standard ATX should cover most any motherboard. You just need to decide if you want Intel or AMD configs.

    Intel = Asus P4P800Deluxe or Abit AI7. Both fit your price range.

    AMD= Abit (don't know the model # here as I do Intels, but Abit does have one great enthusist board...

    Hope this helps, and good luck and have fun...

    Later...
