    ATX is the motherboard standard.

    Most new motherboards are of the ATX variety.

    if you go for a "full" size atx case it will take any size motherboard, you can get small cases that will take midi size boards but not full size, i would go for a full size case purely for the amount of room you have inside to work in and you will get better air circulation, also look for features like quick release side panels and slides for cd rom drives, if you go here you will see what i mean.

    Basically its how the motherboard connects to the power supply.

    ATX power connections.


    Remember AT, sometimes those could really be a pain in the ass, one would go in, and then no matter how you tried, the other would just not pop on.

    Do they even make AT anymore??? I know I haven't seen one in a few years.

    AT, ATX, etc. are Form Factors.
    Yeah, any modern case/motherboard you get these days will be ATX of some sort (ATX, Flex ATX, Micro ATX, etc.)
    So, being that it doesn't come with a power supply, you'll need an ATX PSU.
    I really want this one.

    So...what MoBo you going with?

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free
