    What do you want to do with the new hardware? Are you into, gaming, video editing, content creation, just run a browser & Quicken? Do you have a preference for a particular cpu manufacturer? Are you on a budget? These are important considerations in choosing a mobo, and people can make better suggestions with the answers.

    Yes gaming and all of the above.....that will fit this case.

    Prefer the AMD route.

    No budget control

    If you want to make sure it will fit in the case, can we know what the case is? To do all of the things listed, you're going to need a whole list of hardware: mobo, cpu, hsf, case fans, video card, ram, possibly a new psu, consider faster hds.

    You definetly want a bigger case. Go for a new power supply too. I can't personally recomend a particular mobo from among the latest and greatest (I still use one with a kt266a chipset - waiting for hammers!). Browse some of the other threads as many people have already posted their opinions about the newest mobos.
