Question Confused

Can a microATX mobo work in an ATX case? I've looked at a lot of motherboards and as for overclocking, inorder to get a respectable overclocking mobo, i need to spend at least $150. And out of all the reviews and tests i've seen, overclocking really doesn't make that big of a difference. And i've heard of many a story where people have fried their cpu trying to overclock, and or their mobo. Since i really have no idea what i'm talking about, feel free to correct me. I am still chosing parts for my new computer, trying to save moolah.

For a computer just make sure all componants are compatible. Im a complete newb, but if i where you go with standard ATX format on all the stuff. Micro computers suck for me and many others, so i wouldnt recomend you getting a micro computer. a computer will cost around 700 from parts you pick.
