I went with an ATX style.  You need a bigger case, but it allows easier access to stuff.  A smaller micro ATX may limit how big a graphics card you can fit in too.  (Mine needed 2 slots).  The unavailability of an ASUS in the ATX size and the model # I wanted at the time forced me to use a MCI board, but I'm as happy with it as I would have been with the ASUS.
