Im upgrading a older computer, the mother board is a microAtx. I want to put a regular atx motherboard in. Will this fit? i do not know if the case is a regular atx. Or would i just be better off buying a new case?

Look on the back of the case and see how many expansion slot covers are visible.

microatx motherboards usually have 3 or 4 expansion slots. (PCI / AGP)
regular ATX motherboards usually have 5 to 7.

my guess is that if the pc came with a microatx MB then the case probably can only hold microATX motherboards.
