Can I transfer my motherboard to a new case and still be able to use the Windows 7 license thats tied to the motherboard?

Could somebody suggest a mini tower case that doesn't cost any more than $140.

I use a lot of the Coolermaster cases in builds, one I use all the time is the 343 http://www.coolermaster.co.nz/product.php?product_id=6688 First thing is remove the stock PSU and put in a better one. Sometimes depending on other hardware you have to be careful how you put things together and things can get a bit tight, esp with cabling.

If you have a large graphic card it may not fit.

Also depending on the motherboard -- you have to make sure it will fit -- Whats the Board ?

Personally i like corsair cases, i think the 200r, 350d and the vengance series are the smallest they make. comes in at around $130

I used one of these http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=CHACLM0350&name=COOLER-MASTER-K350-Black-Gaming-Mid-Tower-Case-fro
to replace a case on a 2nd hand PC. Not as good as more expensive cases I've used but not too bad and I was after a cheap one.
Hyper 212 evo cooler just barely fits but everything else went in easy enough. I added a rear fan also, only comes with one in the front.

Is the case good for cable management? And does the case supports for the power supply?

the cheaper cases often have crappy power supplies , or none at all.
Budget in the cost of a good power supply .

You are all assuming the PSU they already has won't work which of course it will so why buy another one?

I think we quite rightly assume its a cheap & nasty PSU as well. Cheap ass cases usually have even nastier Power supplies
I would be unwise to assume that he had a reasonable PSU , and this is something well worth mentioning.
