    Need I remind you of BTX?

    yeah, but 64bit chips are out too, doesnt mean that all 32bit ones dissapear instantly. Its going to be slow progression from ATX to BTX. So expect ATX stuff to still stick around for a while.

    zeradul: BTX is designed specifically for PCI-Express (which like BTX isn't available yet). I hope you don't expect me to stop posting news about (good) ATX products simply because BTX is on the horizon. As kane2g said, ATX will be with us for while yet.

    No no no, i'm just saying that anyone considering purchasing an expensive case will probably want to wait for BTX... I mean, I have been using the same case now for over 4 years, so what I mean is that a case is a big purchase that lasts, and if it is immediatly going to be outdated that would enter into many descisions....

    But then again, I understand that some upgrade their computers monthly, and that is perfectly fine...

    just wondering, would it be possible to use an atx case for the btx form factor by changing the motherboard tray and back stuff? because from what i've seen in articles alot of the btx cases are desktop ones and i hate them, i much prefer towers

    Nope... not without ALOT of Heavy modification....

    Think about it for a second... As a case company, you want to sell your case. If all new computers are a new type, you will change your case to fit WHatever standards there are.

    EVERY good case will be sold with a BTX version. So if you are upgrading now, consider using your old case, or consider going full BTX next summer/fall

    So expect ATX stuff to still stick around for a while.
    Certainly... as I have a AT form factor case right here running with a 233 Mhtz Processor in it. The case WILL still work, it just won't house ANY of the new stuff. This is nothing new, especially to the computer world.

    If you're like me and buy cases that last, then I am just suggesting it would be foolish to buy a new case today, only to have to replace it with your NEXT upgrade.

    PCI Express will help pull BTX out quicker than you think...
