Default ATX computer case

Hi
I want to get a new computer case. I came across computer cases which are ATX, does this mean that they can only fit ATX mother boards?

i guess ATX motherboards are here for quite some time, so the computer case would be an investment for some time.

The majority of all motherboards will fit into an ATX case.

a full sized PC case. as compared to a "mid-tower" which is what alot of people use but in reality is about 3/4 the size of a full size case. you might look at it as being a server size case...but i have seen HUGE server cases, so full tower is nothing lol.

Indeed. I wish I had a full tower. I am planning on getting one, but for now, I'm stuck with this mid-tower
