Hi,
I would like to ask for a suggestion, what's the difference between the prices for different forms of motherboards? From mini-itx, itx, mini ATX, ATX, is there a huge difference?
Thanks in advance

No real difference in prices due to form factor - price differences depend more on the quality of the motherboard and its features.

Mini-itx boards are very different to ATX boards.

The itx & mini-itx boards have the CPU already fitted (embedded) so they cannot be upgraded. They also use a Via C3 processor which are nowhere near as powerful as AMD or Intel chips, but are perfectly adequate for their intended use, which is generally as media server or simple office computing tasks.
