Lay the motherboard in the case. Make sure the holes on the motherboard allign with the holes of the case. When that is complete, start screwing the screws in.

Just normal screws? Nothing special, like plastic brackets?

you should have stand offs though, so the mainboard isnt actually lying on the case!

just lil tube things, a screw at one end as normal but other end has a hole. you screw it into your case then the mainboard screws into them. its so you mainboard isnt lying on the actual case. if the contacts on back of the mainboard lying on case then you could short something out. its not very likely but can happen

I would not use the regular screw because some mother board don't ground properly. Just got to any small computer repair shop and ask for them. Most of the time they would give them to you at no cost. 99nasha I had use "NORMAL" on two mobos but my last one did not like them.
