Honestly, the motherboard you have is fine. A larger board will either A) cost more or B) Have less features (assuming same price). Either way you still wouldn't solve the issue as then most of the motherboard would be unused Is there a smaller version of that case?

Well yeah, that's the point I think a lot of us have tried making, I just gave a more detailed example

No I think it only comes in that size I would like a case with a HDD hot swap dock so if anyone's knows of others then I will look at them.

Those could work, but still look bigger than needed. WHy does the case need the docking station? why not something like this? Amazon.com : Thermaltake BlacX eSATA USB Docking Station : Laptop Computer Docking Stations : Electronics

Yeah I've been thinking about that lately but I would like one with IDE as well like this one 2 5 3 5" IDE Sata USB 2 0 Dual HDD Hard Drive Disk Dock Docking Station OTB WIN7 | eBay, I think I might go for a case without the HDD dock then..

I am not going to get a card like the 770 or 780 if I am not going to take advantage of what it has to offer so I am going for a card like the 660 and I don't do intense gaming.

So far BK it doesn't seem like you will even "take advantage" of the 660. Not for browsing facebook and playing the Sims...
