Default micro atx power supply

Hi guys,

My first time posting, but I'll cut to the chase. I was thinking of building a new PC, and I was thinking of going from normal atx down to a micro atx, and I was wondering if I could bring over my old power supply. Do regular power supplies fit the micro atx cases?

Thanks

There are reasons for labels.
An ATX Power supply will not Fit a Micro ATX Case (MATX)
However some (Most actually) Micro ATX Power supplies will fit in an ATX Case.

Small into big works but not big into small.

Is there any specific reason you want to micro atx, for example: You don't have alot of space or you would want it easy to move and carry around.
If neither of those reasons apply then just go regular ATX case and atx power supply.

More importantly, how much do you want to spend and what do you want to do on it.
