I need to know how the ATX form-factor effects case size
I believe the AT style of case is a 90 degree turn from
   an ATX
If I were to go with an Enlite mini-tower case, could I use
   an ATX board(8.3" x 12.0")
It seems like the parts are in the correct places
I don't want to have to run a big case
I only want two 5.25/two 3.5 external bays
why bother with so many useless bays?
In case your wondering about the board:
   tis a Tyan Titan Turbo s1572
please tell me if I can go ATX with an Enlite Mini-case
thanks

Bro, the best thing for you to do is to ask a pro (obviously). Even EXPERTS don't know everything. The Motherboard Homeworld (web2.superb.net/motherboard) has links to a big bunch of motherboard vendors' sites. If you have a lot of time, find the model of your motherboard on one of these pages and ask the technical support team about a compatible case. If not, try going to www.aberdeeninc.com. They're quite extensive. I wouldn't go by just looking at at the motherboard and the case. There may be little things which you may not know about.
