Default Computer cases.

If i were to buy this case:

Would my intel g33 microATX motherboard screw in properly?

yes, but that included 300w PSU is...

1. probably a cheap/unreliable brand (it's usually best to factor in a decent psu to your build and not rely on a psu comboed with a case)...

2. probably going to be too weak to handle your system for anything other than basic use, web surfing, documents, etc...

just my first impression...

I don't know how the airflow would be in that case, it looks to be a pretty generic one, here's a list of a few cases (name brand) that are a little more expensive ($30-$50 w/free shipping) but may be worth it, if I were you I'd take a look at the reviews and see if they might be a better investment...

good luck...

yeah, that was exactly the one I was thinking of, it's almost identical to the one he linked, and it also has a clear side panel...

80MM exhaust fan? You can do better than that.

actually, if you live by a Fry's they have a great little case on sale for $30, an Antec P180 mini, or at least they did a few days ago (I think it's a closeout sale because they are discontinuing the case), it's a great little case for a microATX mobo, a $160 case for $30...? you can't beat that...

Didn't think about the shipping part. I hope the weather clears up soon though, I wanna drive down to Fry's to see if they have that deal going on.
