You want an atx case that is either that size or larger. Just as long as its bigger your in good shape.

If you have an ATX motherboard, then any case designed for an ATX motherboard will work, either full tower or mid tower. Some very small cases may only take a micro ATX motherboard. If you look on the specifications for the case (as are posted on Newegg or other online merchants), it will tell you what size motherboard the case is designed for. All ATX cases have a standard pattern of holes to mount the motherboard in your case.
