Hi there. I'm about to build a Pentium II, 350. I've never built anything with an ATX case before. Is there any advice or tips I'll need when it comes to building with the ATX case.

Be sure the Power Switch is correctly installed on the Motherboard.

... I've never seem power switch that's connected to a motherboard...  It's just a set of connectors run from power supply to your motherboard.  ATX is far more advance form then Baby-AT, it's got better overall cooling and more advance feature support, like keyboard power on, software power off etc..  If you're able to put together a Baby-AT you should have no problem putting together an ATX.

All ATX case's have a power switch that connects to the Motherboard.

Suggestion:  Buy a motherboard capable of handling PC100 RAM and expandable past the 350MHz chip.  As far as the case and motherboard go, make sure they're both ATX compatible.  The AT and ATX power supplies have different motherboard power connectors.
