E-ATX or ATX board in full tower?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm moving from a mid tower to a full tower finally and I was wondering if a ATX board would look too small? I'm going with the new DG-87 case by EVGA.

Don't think it really matters aesthetically, but be aware that E-ATX boards might be long enough to cover some of the cable management grommets for your computer case

I gotcha, I'll probably just go with an ATX board then, I'm only running 1 card so don't see the benefit of an E-ATX board

There's not that many E-ATX boards around, so just pick the model you like, and if it ends up being an E-ATX one, well, luckily you have space for it.
