That all depends. Is it ATX, BabyATX, what? Of course, if you knew that, you'd know the answer to your question.

Here's my first question since you probably don't know the difference between ATX and MicroATX and whatnot. Is there any kind of VGA expansion slot? How many PCI slots and other obsolete expansion slots are there AFTER the (probably AGP slot) video card expansion slot?

is anybody thinking about the fact not all slot1 motherboards were ATX? it could be AT as slot1 was during the transitional period from AT to ATX. simplest way for you to tell is to look for the psu connector on the motherboard if its is 2 rows of 10 (20 pin) then you have an ATX. if it isn't then you have an AT. then try to figure out if its ATX or micro ATX.
