Default fit atx board in antec mini p180 case?

I have a mini p180 case and would like to know if anybody out there has been able to put an atx sized mobo inside it. i want to build an lga 775 system for my windows xp ssd, for older games, but all the decent stuff looks like it is in atx format.In that case can somebody recommend 775 matx from asus or evga, intel that is sort of high end, good enough to handle the extreme processors? Thanks! I know its old but i still want a core 2 sticker on my case!

I believe an ATX will fit in there, but be very cramped. Been years since I used that case.

What do you mean by decent? I had some very good boards that were M-ATX.

You need just a board, or the whole 9 yards?

BF2 works perfectly fine in Windows 7. Actually, I haven't come across a game I couldn't play in 7.
