Note: Please pretend im a 5 years old kid when explaining your responses to me. I am not that good with computers and I may call some computer parts the wrong name. I R nub! :confused:

I am currently building my first custom computer. I've gotten everything that I needed for my tower but I wouldn't be wasting my time just to tell you that. Sooooo Heres whats up. -_-

My motherboard for my PC is the ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard. Now according to Newegg and my googling a computer case for this Motherboard would have to be an ATX case. My problem is if you view the pics on that Motherboard and look at the l/O panel and compare it to a ATX computer case. It does not look like it will fit. (Example) I have look at many other ATX cases and I get the same thing. It only seems like it will fit in a MicroATX. Only because l/O panel on the case is just a big rectangle whole. But like I stated above, I R Nub! So I am not sure. I was wondering if anyone know what brand name case thats on www.newegg.com will be proper for this Motherboard or what type of case. ATX doesn't seem like a match. :mad:

thnx in adv.

P.S My soon to be pc:

Any standard ATX motherboard will fit in a case that meets ATX specs. The issue with the I/O back panel is really not an issue at all. Any retail motherboard that you purchase will come with a custom I/O back panel to place in your case. The I/O back panels that come in a new case simply pop out and can be replaced with the correct I/O back panel that comes with the motherboard. Keep in mind though, only retail motherboards will come with these extra accessories, avoid OEM motherboards unless the manufacturer or website listing indicates that it comes with an I/O back panel. Hope this helps to ease your concerns about compatibility!

AND I need the case open with a 20 inch box fan running so I can play my games . SO like i said the better the cooling the better you hardware will run .
