    hi, i hope this is the right sub-forum to ask my question. I am planning on building my first computer (i used to buy from Dell), now, I've decided which CPU, hard drives, RAM to use but the problem is about whether a computer case and a power supply unit could match.

    I've checked on the web there are just lots of different terms that make me a little bit confused, i don't know if the PSU will match the mainboard i am interested, and i don't know how to choose an appropriate case among lots of choices in the market.

    My question is... what is itx, atx, and mAtx power supply ? what is itx , atx, mATX and sometimes uATX motherboard? I know that there are also different types and sizes of cases with different terms to describe them, standard case, mini case, micro case, itx case.... oh my god.

    Local computer sales couldn't be trusted, it is my experience. I would like to know when i choose an case, PSU and motherboard, i want to know

    I think i will pick Asus p8b75-m lx plus (motherboard), power unit i am interested is Antec Eco 400W or Corsair CX430. Case, I have no idea,

    1. i'd like to know if the motherboard will match the power supply unit
    2. i'd like to know which types of cases would fit my PSU and m/board nicely
