If you are looking for a mid-case, look at the HAF 922 or HAF 912. I own a 922 myself. Love it.

Your motherboard looks to be ATX.

How much you looking to spend?

Like I said, get it from directcanada. Cases ship at like 20 plus bucks each.

$100 is a nice case.

Coolermaster Haf 922 Mid Tower ATX Case Black 5X5.25 5X3.5INT Front Audio USB eSATA No PSU - DirectCanada
Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid-Tower Case ATX 4X5.25 6X3.5INT USB 1394 No PS - DirectCanada
Corsair Carbide Series 500R Mid-Tower Gaming Case ATX 4X5.25 6X3.5INT USB 1394 No PS Black - DirectCanada

Would be my choices.

Oh it will. Unless you buy a complete odd ball motherboard, or server board, you'll never really not find a case and motherboard not work together.

Hafs are nice cases... though not my cup of tea.

Well ill just be moving all the parts from my gateway, so i'm not quite sure if my motherboard was made specifically for my computer and if it will go into another case.
