If it is fitted with a single multi-pin power plug to connect to the motherboard it is ATX, the older AT boxes used two connectors that fitted side by side on a single row of pins on the mobo.

The ports on an ATX board e.g. parallel & serial, are soldered onto the motherboard so will need a line of holes in the back of the case to match. AT boards use cables

Try looking on the case / motherboard web sites for info !

Good site you found pc moron

It's most likely what's known as a microATX board then - smaller than a standard case ATX mobo.

You are likely to have fitting problems with full sized cards or having enough slots for upgrading etc.

The AT and ATX designations are to do with the power supply.

Here's links about form factors, including MicroATX:
