That fits the standard ATX footprint, but don't just get "any" pick one with good ventilation, ample power and provision for additional fans, you'll want them later, promise.

You call that the answer???
 And you agree with RoadWarrior's suggestion???  Did you have help with that?  You should be ashamed for posting something like that,

If you agree with RW then he should get the credit for saying it not you for agreeing with it??

to go along with the others (can I make this a proposed answer too?)...... I always look at a case/power supply price as:

if both only cost $49 bucks........... just how much did they (the seller)  invest in the power supply.

insist on a power supply with ball bearing fan.

if the case is lighter (weight) than the power supply, that too is not a good thing

Don't get all hot over the mini  cases (unless you have small hands)

as soon as you reject rickson's answer, i will repost this as the answer <:^)
