Question BTX Case vs ATX Case, Looking Forward To seeing it?

For some who dont know, there will be a new type of case coming out, It's Called BTX.

Balanced Technology Extended.

Currently we have the ATX case, which is called Advanced Technology Extended.

Here's a website with pictures. I know its not in english, but if you just look at the pictures, you can understand it.

For myself, im not looking forward to the BTX cases because i believe the motherboards might be built differnetly and the PSU is already built differently, so once again! dont go out wastin money on a expensive PSU!

just go to http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1876
it's in english and very well explained.

the big difference is definitely size and noise levels.
i'm sure PCI Express will be great and all, but does anybody know if that's coming to ATX systems as well? i sure hope so, even though the new BTX cases are about the same size as a current Mid-Tower (which means that current PSU's can fit, contrary to beliefs of some.). It's just the smaller cases that need the weird shaped psu to save space.

overall i'm sticking to ATX sicne I'm not one to jump on the "new technology" bandwagons until it's established as a good step.

Remember this...

The BTX design team was headed by Intel. I've seen some specs on it a few weeks ago and it looks very interesting.

I won't switch till it becomes the industry standard. I won't loose my ATX case untill I have to.
