Conforming to the ATX standard, the MSI MS-7529 should fit into the majority of cases. ATX is the most common form factor, and as such has a high degree of compatibility with other components while providing a decent number of slots to widen your expansion options.
The MSI MS-7529 supports onboard graphics. This allows for integrated graphics when paired with a compatible CPU that supports them. Integrated graphics are a cheap alternative to using a graphics card, but should be avoided when frequently using modern applications or games that require intense graphical processing. There are 0 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means a graphics cards will have to be placed in a smaller PCIe slot, which will significantly and detrimentally affect its performance potential, limiting it to the bandwidth of that particular slot. In addition, the graphics card interface revision should be as close as possible to the motherboard's VGA graphics card interface in order to maximize the potential of both the motherboard and the graphics card. The MSI MS-7529 does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire. 2b1af7f3a8
