If your motherboard is an ATX, then any standard ATX case. If it's an mATX, any mATX cases and above.

Tell us what the brand/model of the mobo is. Or find out search for it. It'll either be ATX or MATX

There's probably a lot of them. You'll be there all day / year looking for them. Just look in your local computer shop

So paint it black with a red "go faster" stripe maybe.

Perhaps adding flames will make it go faster?

What case would you suggest for my motherboard which is ATX?

How long is a piece of string?? There's a lot of ATX cases around. How much do you want to spend on it ? What do you want to have on the case (on the front of it)?

Price Range?

For a good mid range one, the Antec Three Hundred is good, great built quality, and excellent cooling.

Reasonably cheap at around $120 iirc, you can't get much better than this for this kinda price.

With that budget, you could also get an Antec nine hundred two, or a CM Storm and lots of other decent cases.

Pretty much any case with a decent brand should be fine:)

Wheres that CM storm you mentioned? Right Here CM Storm (http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=7302) simply transfer all components over from Old Case to new.

There are other Storm Cases, but they price at $289 & $325 ,if you want to see them, in Playtechs search top left, in the search,( where it says keyword) just type in Storm.

I like the look of the Antec Three Hundred

and this http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=7302 (http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=7302)

Which would be the best?

Well the Storm looks better, but I'd say the 300 has better built quality, as I've read that the Storm's are slightly weaker, but still pretty good.

All comes down to your personal preference.

Personally, I'd get the Antec 900:p
