Default SFF cases

What do you guys think about small form factor cases. In particular this one here:

I would put a micro ATX ASUS P5B-VM in it. But my real question though is the site for the case says it supports ATX PS2 power supplies. WTF is an ATX PS2? Could I just stick a Corsair 620W in it?

if your running a high power system in no way do you want a small factor case like that becuase of the things you CANT fit in it and the bad airflow.

Ive read some reviews on that case and the only downside on the airflow is not being able to use an aftermarket cpu cooler. Im seriously considering giving it a shot when I get back. My only real concern is the psu not fitting inside it.
