    Question:

    I have an empty PC case that I would like to use to build my own system. How would I find out what size motherboard and power suppy I would need for it .

    Answer:

    1.  Check to see if the mainboard has the following:
    • Connector ports rotated 90 degrees (PS/2, COM, LPT-1)
    • 20 or 24 pin power connector
    If you answered yes to both, it is safe to assume your mainboard is of the ATX form factor.
