An mATX board should fit any case that can fit a Full ATX (though check your manual to be completely sure). The mATX board can also fit into mATX only cases (smaller), generally draw less power, and have built in graphics that you can use as an output to a TV or monitor without the need for a discrete graphics card (or if yours breaks).
They lack additional expansion PCI slots or extra PCIx slots found in high end full sized ATX boards (for crossfire or SLI), have fewer SATA/ide/floppy connections, and usually the chipset isn't quite as powerful/advanced as those found in the high end ATX boards.
I think it's fine as long as you don't plan on running a seperate sound card, TV tuner, PCI wireless card etc.
