Tower is pretty big, usually only top end cases are full towers. Mid towers are the most common. You have a Micro-ATX sized motherboard, which is a bit smaller than the regular sized ATX.

You can usually upgrade everything in a mid tower prebuilt, but there's no point as you can just build one yourself.

Cases should be defined by the size of motherboard they can accomodate.
That case looks like it could hold a ATX motherboard which will have 7 expansion slots.
It could be a Micro-ATX which has 4 slots.
A ITX will have only one.

A full tower will usually have room for a large number of hard drives, like 6-8+ and 3 dvd drives.
A mid tower will have 1/2dvd drives and 4 -6 hard drive slots.

To know what you can change, find out the exact model of the motherboard. CPU-Z will identify it.
