Lightbulb Mobo and Case compatibility?

Alright. The mobo i wanna get says "Motherboard Factor: ATX / Micro ATX ". So i assume that the Case can only hold this type of boards. So, is this like,..every board in general? Is like, a PCI-Express Asus or AGP asus campatible with this type? Help?

All modern motherboards are ATX, and very few are the newer BTX, but you'll know if a board is BTX, it'll tell you.

Most ATX cases will hold microATX boards... they're just shorter.

BTX are Intel, and they are rare (no one wants them).

micro ATX and ATX are the same, cuz the board has more holes that you can screw it to the case

Micro ATX is the same, but with fewer PCI slots. any micro ATX motherboard will fit in an ATX case
