Simple answer... No... it's mainly for the size of the case, all ATX mobos work with all ATX PSUs for example, I've an ATX powersupply that I'm using with a mATX mobo, but the case supports both powersupplies, while my previous HTPC case wouldn't and wouldn't fit in a full size graphics card either... so I bumped up.

An ATX PSU will run a micro-ATX motherboard fine, no need for a µATX PSU, but I'm not sure if an ATX PSU would fit in a µATX case however.
