I'm doing a system upgrade, and am considering this Gigabyte motherboard to pair with my new Intel Core 2 Quad processor:

http://www.gigabyte.us/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2914

However, I can't completely determine if this particular mobo will fit in my computer case--an ATX mid-tower...

I've been unable to locate my ATX mid-tower brand on the web (just says "ACC" inside the case;it's about 5 years old). The Gigabyte mobo's dimensions are WxD 12" x 9.6" and the dimensions of my current mobo, an Asus A7V880, are 12" x 9.6," which is encouraging--but I can't tell if the I/O ports of the new Gigabyte mobo will line up OK with the slots in my ATX case...can anyone tell?

Here's a link to A7V880 mobo specs:

Thanks for any feedback!

Unless you have a very basic video card, that power supply won't pull it. What video card are you planning on running?

In addition, those Basiq supplies are not very good quality or very strong anymore. If you have not completed the order, might want to hold on that one.

I have an nVidia GeForce 7300GT video card...might I need to upgrade the video card? I do some low-octane gaming (Out of the Park, War in the Pacific)
and also use iClone, a Machinama-type animation/video-editing program...

What brand/type of power supply do you recommend for my setup?
