Im thinking about buying a computer to my gf on our 1 year commemoration, but my budget is really low, and i saw this mobo + cpu for a reasonable price but i got a few doubts

1 - Can i install it on a normal case? i mean lot of ppl say that it only fits in dell cases, is it true? i mean, i dont wanna buy one

2 - The i5 2500k supports only pcie 2.0, but im considering a gtx 960, will it idk fit? or even work?


Please, be quick, i got 1 month and i may need to buy from china
