Default Motherboards and cases.

When buying a cases for a new PC you are building, what specifications do you look for to check that the motherboard will fit into the case properly? Are all the screw holes in standard places?

It's called atx. If you have an atx case an atx should fit in there.

Thanks. I thought it may have been something about the "Form factor" specs.

It is called "form factor." ATX is one form factor, there's also micro-ATX, and BTX which isn't very popular now. When your looking at cases, it'll tell you whether it'll support ATX, micro-ATX, or both.
