the symbol is a gerek letter Micro.

You can probably ignore that, I imagine if means either:
you have a smaler than usual board.

or

the manufacturer wanted to sound cool.

The Symbol is Mu, which stands for Micro, just to point out :D Everybody should know the Greek Alphabet!

It probably won't, you'll need a new case if you want a standard ATX to fit into a Micro ATX Card. New cases aren't that much anymore though.
