Question about eMachines T3508 PC Desktop
The difference between ATX and MicroATX is the size. An ATX board will usually have 6-7 slots to add cards like video, network or sound cards. An ATX board will also usually not have a video port on the board. A MicroATX board will usually have only 3-4 slots to add cards into it, at least one of which being dedicated to AGP or PCI Express Video cards.
To answer your question: That computer uses a MicroATX board. A Micro ATX board will most likely work in any PC Case whereas an ATX board requires an ATX size case (Mid or Full size Tower).

Motherboard Form Factor,
The Micro-ATX form factor is considered to be 244mm by 244mm,
or also can be stated as 9.6 inches by 9.6 inches.
(9.6 inches is approximately 9 and 5/8ths inches)
An ATX form factor motherboard is considered to be 305mm by 244mm, or also stated as 12 inches by 9.6 inches.
MAKE a drawing/s, and notes, as to where the cables from the Front Panel go to, on the motherboard.
The motherboard manual I provided in the above link, will tell you where the wires, (Cables), go ON the motherboard.
It doesn't tell you what each individual wire that comes from the Front Panel is.
If the cables are not marked that come from the Front Panel, you'll have to take the Front Panel apart, to see where the individual wires go.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HDD LED, and so on)
Notes and drawings will make it so you don't have to, and mark the wires.
What makes you think you need a new motherboard, or are you buying a better computer case?
