Default Quick case question

Hi very quick question...
Would this case:
Extra Value Black Cube Case With Side Window - With 650W PSU - Ebuyer
fit a normal atx motherboard:
XFX nForce 680i SLI SKT 775 onboard 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer

Sorry but you guys are reliable and the page doesnt really make it clear what size of mobo fits inside it...
Cheers

nope "Main Board: Standard Micro ATX / Baby AT" you need to use a micro-atx board

not in that size case, there's a reason why it's that small

Something smaller than a normal ATX case would be an Mini ATX case, but they are nothing close to the size of those micro cases

there is no such thing as a mini-atx form factor :-s...............

The form factors (each step downwards in size mean a reduction in functionality and upgradability):

E-ATX = for servers and dual socket boards (ignore for home builds)
ATX = This is your average consumer board and what you will see in most desktops
Micro-atx = This is for the smaller desktops like the case you listed above it is still highly functional but has a limited upgradability.
Mini-itx = small size for highly portable systems same form factor as used in most laptops
nano-itx = small occasionally used in laptops but its main use in the home is as a htpc
pico-itx = about the size of the original gameboy extreme portability and only umpc's use this form factor atm

I don't see how you are getting confused it is very simple a case needs to be larger then the motherboard so that it can house it you liked the case above, so buy a micro-atx board as that is what fits in the case!!!! micro-atx is perfectly functional and can do everything a atx can except it may have lost one or two pci slots

here are some micro-atx cases pick one:
Kustom PC's

or here are some standard cases again pick one
Kustom PC's
Kustom PC's

Well they generally aren't available you can make your own case or simply choose a micro-atx board instead
