I was studying Motherboard Form Factors in my curriculum and did a bit of research online.
However, most of the explanations were too technical for me to grasp.
I would like the community to help me out with the following Form Factors
2. Full AT
3. Baby AT
which is the currently used form factor???
atx and micro atx are current boards; btx is no longer used on newer boards. The rest is for some proprietary boards and obsolete stuff; for example, an old dell is for sale on craiglist for only $15; the reason it's so cheap is that it uses a pentium III cpu and windows 98, and the case won't work with atx unless you physically modify it.
BTX: Designed to replace ATX in 2005, was adopted by Gateway and Dell for proprietary systems. Was never fully adopted, and ATX variations are still used. Main purpose for design was to help with power issues with Pentium 4 systems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BTX_(form_factor)
