I'm buying a micro ATX case. In the specifications it says it can take a power supply up to 380 Watts.

That doesn't make sense to me. Are some cases unable to accept high-wattage PSUs ? ?

Not that I am aware of, maybe the case was manufactured back before micro ATX power supplies were larger than 380 Watts.

As long as the PS physically fits, the wattage is irrelevant.
