    Psu and form factor

    So i'm kind of confused. i just bought a Corsair TX750W 750-Watt Power Supply and it says the form factor is ATX now does that mean my motherboard has to be an ATX or can it also be a micro atx?


    Might be a dumb question but i'm confused.

    I found this from some googling not sure if it applies to your situation or not.

    "A Micro ATX Power Supply is an essential component in every Small Form Factor computer. A regular ATX power supply will not fit in a small form factor case, so a Micro ATX power supply will need to be ordered if you are planning on building this type of system. "
