Motherboards come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This is not for the sake of appearance as much as functionality. These shapes and sizes are known as form factors. A form factor describes the basic shape of a motherboard but more than that, it describes compatible computer cases, power supplies, and the physical organization of its ports, indicators and external buttons and switches. A motherboards form factor must be taken into consideration when choosing the rest of the major components that will go into the actual construction of a computer.
