    I would like to get a new case for my computer. Since my motherboard is in an ATX case now I assume it will fit in any case I get that is ATX. Is this correct? Also, when I switch cases, can I just leave the processor on the mother board, unscrew the board and put it in the new case? Thanks for any assistance.

    Most ATX cases are indeed generic, with one possible exception. Many ATX motherboards have different placements of the ports, and frequently ship with a small removable insert for the port section in the back of the case. There is no reason not to leave the processor and memory in the MB for the transfer.
