    Before I order my nice new Cheiftec Tower I just needed to check the meaning of "Extended ATX" against "ATX".
    The above case is described as extended ATX but my mb is ATX,I'm presuming the ATX mb will still fit in an extended spec case.
    If someone could verify it would be appreciated.

    extended atx is basically an atx board that is slightly longer in the vertical dimension. It is usually the standard for workstations. A regular ATX motherboard will fit into an eATX case with no problems whatsoever, your even left with extra space.
