    My price budget is $600. I found this article showing the perfect configuration except that
    Isnt the motherboard which is a micro atx motherboard incompatible withthe Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. I thought you couldnt put a micro atx motherboard in a atx case? If this is the case can anyone recommend a great motherboard for gaming thats no more than a $100 and is compatible with all these components?

    You can put a mATX board in an ATX case, it's just that ATX cases are big enough to fit either type. Generally speaking mATX boards are pretty weak, so I'm not sure I agree with the article's recommendation, but it will fit.
