Default Would this all fit?

Just wanted to know whtether this motherboard would be able to fit inside an Mico ATX/Standard ATX sized case...


And also, the 4870 X2 says it requires one 6 pin connector and an 8 pin PCI-E connector. Would this PSU have those?


One last thing .. it's been a long time since I've bought any parts .. but when you buy components do they come with the pins that fix them inside the case?

Yes, the PSU has a 6/8-pin PCI-E. You'd have to use that as an 8, meaning you'd need to use one of the supplied converters that will come with the card to convert from molex to PCI-E 6-pin. The motherboard would fit a standard ATX case, but more than likely wouldn't fit a micro.

The motherboard will fit in an ATX standard case, but make sure your case has enough room for the card, it's a gigantic 10.5" long.

The PSU has two 6+2 pin connectors, so you could run the card fine with no adaptors required.

The standoffs for the motherboard should come with the case. Your motherboard will come with the required screws as will the PSU.
