Default How woulc this motherboard fit into this Case?

I'm purchasing a new case, which can be found here http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...y%20-%20Retail

so how would this motherboard, sound slots and the stuff in the back fit into the case?

Computer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...y%20-%20Retail
Motherboard:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Showim...board+-+Retail

So should I not buy the case, or is there a way to work that out?


EDIT:
Im talking about the back of the computer, like there a six color slots at the top of the motherboard but only a place for two on the case

Buy them both. You are buying a retail version of the motherboard and it will be shipped with a new rear panel insert that will fit the new case. The expansion slots within the case all you will need is available. Just don't go removing all the slot covers and you will be fine.

Most e-machines have microATX motherboards.

why did you not say that to begin with. It won't fit. there is nothing that you can do. the plugs will not match. the headers won't configure properly because it is proprietary and set up NOT to be used any other way.

before I get into all this. Please let me know EXACTLY what it is that you are trying to achieve. What is wrong with the setup that you have now?

Just as a side note, as lurk was saying, retail motherboards come with their own backplate. Cases are designed to accept new plates as different motherboards have different ports for the back. So basically, you can get any motherboard you want.

Well I on my current comp I game (Diablo II, WoW, and other heavy games) and I webdesign and just use it for normal internet browsing and stuff.

My current computer, well lets just say...it sucks. Games lag like no other, only has 1 slot for a dvd rom and stuff, only two expansion slots in the back. It's just not what I need, I need more
