There really isn't any big difference. It basically comes down to what you want and if you go to LAN parties.

Well, most mATX mobo's i've seen will only allow 1 gpu, and most, not all, are not meant for heavy overclocking due to the size and budget of the form factor.

Micro ATX is slightly larger and can handle another pcie slot. not very many mITX boards have more than 1 pcie slot, if any do.
