It depends on the exact type of computer. Most personal computers that are store bought have a size/type referred to as M-ATX, which stands for Micro - 'ATX' which is a motherboard "form factor". Some companies have tried and/or use different form factors. For instance, DELL uses a form factor referred to as "BTX" / M-BTX.
Most Pre-built systems also tend to have poor case ventilation so having a gaming computer in a case designed for the heat of an standard computer will lead to either needing to replace all the fans(If there even are any) in the case, or seirous heat issues motherboard form factor.
I would recommend that you just get an aftermarket to be sure you have good cooling and space for your computer
Standard-ATX (Sorry its sideways! :P)
rule of thumb, a micro ATX will usually have 4 "Expansion slots" a Standard ATX will have 7
