    Case will have to be a tower, small or you can use a mid tower, power supply, you will have to buy another one, yours won't work.. You will also need memory and dvd/cdrw drive, thats if yours is no good..

    Yea, that one would work, it is a mid tower, I prefer mid tower because it gives your computer plenty of room to breath..
    NO on the the RAM, your will not work, I already checked..

    all the info on that AMD board, Like cpu info, memory info and so on... GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND, You can find all your Questions on GOOGLE, just do some research before buying anything... And I would recommend doing some reading up on how to build a computer, before you get over your head...Its not as easy as it may look..
    But if you do some research and check out you tube as well, you should be able to build that computer.. Good Luck...

    Also Make sure you get a heat shield and fan for the AMD CPU, It should be in the AMD box, If not you will need one..

    Okay this video did help, but I cant find what wattage i need for the PSU on the manufacturers page for "M5a78L-M LX" (motherboard) - can you help me find out what i need? Also it said nothing about fans, could you help me with that?

    I gave you a link for a power supply:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermaltake...33?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1344703428&sr=1-33
    it says 430 watt, Like I said you want a good Brand Power supply, that is why I choose that one... If you buy / get a cheap one, then you will have a chance of it
    burning out or catching fire... As for case fans you will just need to install one fan in the rear of the case...Just make sure you install it RIGHT, It has to suck the air out of the case.. I am not sure about the size fan in the rear of the case because it does not show the rear... You might want to get another case..

    That case will work, the only other thing would be Ram or memory, the memory will depend on your OS...(OPERATING SYSTEM) What do you plan on running ?
    Windows XP or Vista or Windows 7 ???? and do you want to run 32 bit or 64 bit, the bit will determined your ram... 32 bit can Only hold 4 gigs or ram, as 64 bit can hold over 16 to 32 gigs of ram...it basically comes down to what will be doing on this computer......
