  1. First, which type of motherboard provides better cooling to a processor, a M-ATX. or full ATX. Micro ATX are smaller causing more airflow but i dont know. And second, what would be the cheapest gaming processor, dont suggest something i dont need. Thanks for your help.

    ATX is the best option realy, also I would recommend buying a AMD AM2 cpu and motherboard. Very fast.

    BTX motherboards are designed with cooling in mind, but it is new and not widely supported. ATX is standard.
