I have a G9657MA-8EKRS2H motherboard that I would like to place in a case to build
a PC. I have several old computers & cases that I have collected in the past. For example could
I use a Dell 3000 case for this board? I have several simular Dell computers with celron processors
in them. Maybe I could salvage a case/power supply from them?
How do I choose a computer case for this mother board. What factors do I use to choose a
computer case? I guess I need to look at fan placement and venting. Form factors etc.
What do need to consider here?

Thank you,

The things to consider that affect functionality are cooling capability, noise, dust, and ease of assembly. Other factors that may matter include appearance and bling, size, space for expansion, and cable management.

What is most important to you just depends. But you should always pay a LOT of attention to cooling capability. For myself, noise is a big one; I want my system to be quiet. If you live in a dusty environment, inlet filters are a good idea...though you WILL have to clean them.

Beyond that, it is totally up to you. Just remember that your overall satisfaction with your build will be greatly influenced by the case that you put it in - and for reasons far beyond just the aesthetic.
