ATX is a motherboard and power supply form factor. That means that ATX cases need ATX motherboards and ATX power supplies.
I got an NForce2 with a 450 watt power supply in my ATX case.

Stands for Advanced Technology Extended (PC). Refers to the computer case, power supply and motherboard specifications. The older variety is AT.
When you assemble a machine, the 3 components mentioned above must be all of the same kind, either AT or ATX. The ATX power supply additionally offers a 3.3V power and 5V stand-by for keyboard power-on, Wake-On-LAN and possibly a non-interrupted USB slot. It is also software-driven, while the older AT kind can be only turned on/off manually.
Wow, this AMD K6 board has both AT and ATX power connectors! They have been thinking about everything!
