ATX Case

  JGarrington 17:31 07 May 2008

Can anyone advise me on a PC case for an ATX motherboard that has 10-slots for usb?

Seems a rarity to find 10 slot usb cases.

you can get a 5 or 6 port usb 2 pci card to bring the case up to requirements.

Sorry, looking for a case to fit a ATX standard motherboard with 4 usb slots on the case.

Case also needs to fit Nvidia 8800 boards/graphics cards.

Is there any such case?

I have never seen a case with more than 4 or 5 usb ports. a full tower case will take a large graphics card and is best if you have space otherwise you will need to read case reviews to make sure a card will fit.

Just ensure that the case will take an ATX motherboard - it will be offered as a miniATX, Midi ATX (the most popular) or Tower.

The best guide, once you have found an ATX case and there are plenty of them, is to check out the height, width and depth; the larger the case the easier it is to work on inside.

An average Midi ATX case is between 410 and 440mm in height.

I think that's more the way I'll go and just buy a standard case for the ATX.

Very useful links, thankyou very much for looking those out for me.

Great advice, thankyou.

Just to make it clear, after re-reading my 18:57 posting, is that a miniATX case won't take ATX motherboards - you normally need Midi or upwards.
