Yes, as long as the form factor is the same. Take anti static precautions.

Breaking a computer case can be very difficult to do, so if the case was dropped etc, then it might pay to check all the items before reassembly, especially if the computer as not been tested recently?.

If you are not too fussy about the physical appearance of your computer, have a look for someone who is throwing out an old machine and reuse the case. There are usually quite a few on the Freecycle web sites. Otherwise, try Ebuyer as chub_tor said earlier.

Your Mobo, Foxconn is a mATX size motherboard so you are really only restrained by the amount of cash you want to spend.
