This is quite simple, actually. ATX is the standard size motherboard. This means that as long as you have an ATX case (which we could determine if you'd post the make/model), you can guarantee with certainty that an ATX motherboard will fit in the case.

By the way, the internal structure and outer aesthetics differ from case to case, but the tray where the mobo sits will always have the same screw hole pattern.

Don't just take my word for it though, remove your old motherboard (if you haven't already), and take a look at the screw placement. Notice how the holes align perfectly. This is an ATX-based universal design to ensure that all ATX mobos fit into ATX cases.

The Acer Aspire E700 has a Micro-ATX (M-ATX) motherboard inside of the case. You'll need to replace it with that type of motherboard.

is m-atx common use today or rather an old thing not anymore produced?

micro is just smaller and for smaller cases a little more expensive for features like crossfire/sli since it doesnt have room for half the pci slots a full atx does

would i be able to find a nice m-atx mobo supporting ddr3 and crossfirex? :) ?

dd3 easy yes but crossfire will cost more then a full atx and be really cramped from what i seen
