    XFX is the company that makes the board, the form factor is ATX, it says it on the third line of the description in the middle

    OMG yes, I know. Do I relate? No. But I think it's cute. Very guy stuff! I only have an Alien lappy cause I found it in the garbage, fixed it
    ...and for 6 months the eyes creeped me out and I was embarrassed. U would luv it.

    Yr mates.....will all turn green! And I agree cooling is major.

    When it's all done...post pics!:D

    PS...now that we get ATX form factor....you have infinite case options!!!!! Well, a lot MORE.

    Are you planning on running SLI?

    If not i strongly recommend an intel P35 based motherboard. Nvidia is relatively new to making chipsets to support intel and the 680i had kind of a rough run. The 780i hopefully will be better but i normally choose something that is known for stability when planning a new build. P35 isn't the latest and greatest but it is the chipset of choice if you plan on overclocking.
