computer case compatibility

I have a cooler master ATC-111C SX1 aluminum ATX mid tower case that I bought in 2002. I just now have the opportunity to build a computer.  Seems like Mother Boards and Hard Drives may have changed since then?.  Will these components fit in my case:

MSIP45 Platinum mother board
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750
LG GBW-H20L BluRay Drive
Samsung HD103UJ Hard drive

I'm trying to save money and use this new case that was expensive 7 years ago.  I would like to make sure the front connections, drive slots etc. work or buy a new case. Thank you - Art

    Power supply -  yes
    Bluray drive - yes
    Hard drive - yes
    Motherboard - yes

    All of the components are industry standards. An ATX motherboard in 2002 is the same size now.

    The cooler master ATC-111C SX1 is considered a full tower case (, not midtower so it should be more than sufficient to hold those components.  Only microATX form factors are a concern, as they squeeze every bit of space available into a compact container.

    Thanks for the quick response. It won't take me 7 years to build it this time!
