Besides the size difference, micro ATX can support up to four RAM modules, but mini ones can only support to. For individuals who are committed to gaming, a larger motherboard may be required.

Other differences to be considered are the number of PCIe slots, which are only four in micro ATX. These slots are used by expansion cards like sound cards, internal modems, and graphics cards.

Depending on the type of PC you are planning to build, the RAM you require, and PCIe slots needed, you should pick the motherboard that best fits your needs.

For gamers, we would advise sticking to micro ATX boards as they offer enough RAM and support enough PCIe slots to set up an ideal rig.
