Can I use a prebuilt computer's case to build an entirely different system?

So, I found this guy selling pc cases on a local online store, and one of the cases belonged to the Compaq HP Presario sr1219uk computer.

So, can I use that case for my PC build or am I looking for another case?

Note: I'm 11 years old, and my budget is REALLY low. I already bought a CPU and GPU, now I need the rest of the parts, so please don't recommend 150$ cases please.

It's not really recommended... HP makes some proprietary cases, so sometimes they don't fit normal power supplies or motherboards. I'm not sure about that case.
How much is that case going to cost? If it's $30 or more, there are better options.

I would 1st mention what GPU and CPU you got to get suggestions on what to get next.

Well, about that.
Here in this site, people don't know what they're selling. This case would cost (Now don't laugh) 7$, so yeah. I'm probably off to find another one for the same price.


to esco_sid:



CPU: Intel core 2 duo E7200 2.53GhZ
GPU: Sapphire radeon HD 4670 512Mb

I wouldn't wish for recommendations, as I am buying used items from a site where people don't know what they're selling.


So, it's recommended that I use a third-party case?
