Newbie curious about Cases

Hello,
I am trying to learn more about computers before I go ahead and buy one. My question is this, if i find parts I want for a computer, how do I figure out what size/type of case I need for my parts? So for example, if my motherboard says its form factor is ATX, how do I decide between buying a mini, mid, super, or full tower? Those are my four options right?
