Default build choice <-----

Hey i was deciding to either build a mATX computer or an ATX computer using a mini atx tower. Is the space gain really that much between the two and overall what is a better system?

i looked into matx and it was harder to find motherboards with the specs i wanted/needed. atx is the way to go IMHO, matx is pretty darn cramped inside and can be difficult to work with. just my 2 cents
