Just like the title says. More specifically do you think this Alienware MJ-12 case (which is in the E-ATX form factor if I'm not mistaken) support any regular ATX mobo?

Just asking because I love the case and have the opportunity to get the case for cheap from my "connection" (but not so cheap where I can risk wasting my money). Thanks for your help guys. :)

I'm not totally sure that all of them will, but i DO have an EATX Case with an ATX mobo, so I'm fairly sure if my combo works out they all generally work.

Also, mind me asking how cheap? I really really like those cases as well. I always wondered what the going price for one was.

That's good to know. :)

Do all the screw holes of the mobo lineup with the case or just some of them? What about the PSU? Could I buy any standard ATX PSU?

Well I only consider it *cheap* in this case because the only other way I could get this case is if I bought the computer from Alienware itself. That would cost me close to 2 Grand. Other than that I can tell you I'm paying $200 for the case. Although I'm not going to tell you where I came across this deal because I don't want you to take it from me. :D
