alot of towers are made to fit both, the difference is literally just in the size. if it says you need strictly micro then you need to get micro for it to go in the case

Personally I like Micro because I like having a lot of power in a little package. The result, though, is what seems like inordinate heaviness. My rig (shoved into the tiny little formerly-Compaq case) seems ridiculously heavy because of how small it is. XD
MicroATX cases give you less space for displacing heat though. The bigger the case, the more air inside theoretically it shouldn't run as hot but it largely depends on how good your fans are and how many you have
Personally I like having a full sized ATX case/board. It looks monstrous and has space for more upgrades down the road. And the LEDs look awesome imo
Quiet fans ftw. I have my computer in my bedroom and sometimes I have to leave my computer on all night. I used to think that LED's were the shiznit but it's impossible for me to sleep. If I get any fans with LED's in them I cut them now.
I got a newegg preferred account and am now planning on using some of my old parts to build an HTPC for my parents for their streaming. It might be cheaper to go with a roku but I'd rather give them something they are already familiar with. Also going to upgrade my current tower. New cpu, more ram, switch out my case fans, get an ssd, higher capacity hd, and send in my liquid cooler to get replaced.

I need some recommendations on parts. All I need to do is surf the Internet (YouTube, forums, eBay, etc) and have a large hard drive for storing lots of pics. I might watch an occasional movie via a BD drive. No games or pic editing. Thanks.
