Because motherboards are a standard size. That board is an ATX board. Which is 12.0x7.8 inches. As long as you get a case that supports a standard ATX board, you will be all set.

I just built a computer about 2 weeks ago using the Intel Q9550 processor which I got for $200. I want to say the Q9650 was about $320 at NewEgg...so your quote of $433 seems high.

For what it's worth, I got the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R mobo with the Q9550 (2.83) and just set the FSB speed to 367 in the BIOS and my Q9550 is now running at 3.2 and is cool and perfectly stable with the stock Intel cooler. Other than clock speeds, there is no difference between the Q9550 (2.83ghz) and the Q9650 (3.06hgz)
