Spare parts into Shuttle - will they fit?

I have an old Gaming PC from a few years ago (still not a bad spec, especially with an over-clock) that I'd like to use as a basic server/download hub.

However I'd rather not have it cluttering up my desk space.

I have an old Shuttle somewhere in the attic and so wondered if I could fit the innards of the PC to the shuttle case.

The Mobo of the PC is 35mm x 24mm - would this fit within the Shuttle? Would I need to ram the PSU in or would a shuttle PSU manage a normal Mobo?

Obviously I won't be needing a GFX card or Disc drive etc so a simple set-up of CPU, RAM and 2/3HDDs (Yes some may need to be mounted externally due to space...)

Will it fit? Or is there a small (and cheap) alternative of a smaller sized PC case (I have a regular sized case at the moment that has a lot of space in it!)

Oh and a network card may be useful (think this is built in anyway)
