microATX mobo with ATX Case, possible?

Have been looking around for a new case and I have come across new Computer jargon which is "Motherboard form factors", quick question will a microATX (244mm x 193mm) mobo work with an ATX Mid Tower Computer Case? Or do I have to upgrade my mobo as well? Thanks!

Depends on the case. Many will accept both.

Quite common. Most ATX cases will fit an Matx. Read the description of the case, they will usually tell what types of motherboards they accept.
