Question Can I swap all of the parts inside a OMEN PC into a new case? (Might be a really dumb question)

The model of my OMEN PC is OMEN 880-106NG I believe. Im curious about moving all the parts into a new case since I saw the motherboard which was made by HP and I never really built my own PC so Im not sure wether or not I can actually just unplug and unscrew every part inside the case and then screw them all in and install them in a new case that has the same size classification (atx right? idk)

This is what the PC Case looks like. https://www.google.de/search?q=Omen+pc+880-106ng&rlz=1C1CHBF_deDE776DE776&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj247ajq4_iAhVSJVAKHS_NCD0Q_AUIDygC&biw=2560&bih=1297#imgrc=FRuMzMaQSPUWsM:

No, typically all ATX (or E-ATX) cases will support the smaller form factor boards too.

They can look a little small inside an ATX tower, but with mATX it's not too bad. mITX looks ridiculous (to me), but still functional.

What are you looking to achieve with the transplant?

Im trying to make my PC look better. Right now its just a black box with an OMEN symbol and some red LEDs but I wanted to get a Case with tempered glass and put in some RGB. Dont know what kind of RGB I should get though as in do I get RGB fans,an RGB CPU Cooler or RAM (RAM too expensive for me tbh and I have 16 gb ram so I dont want to buy new RAM). I do have a long LED chain that I could install there and I think I can connect it to the PSU aswell but Im not sure whether or not the adhesive works that well in cases. Never tried it. Would appreciate if you could tell me what I can do about the RGB stuff. Thanks for helping me so far :)

RGB isn't really my thing, honestly.

BUT, if you're strictly going for aesthetics, don't worry about replacing the RAM - that's an unnecessary expense.

RGB fans, or even white fans and an RGB strip would be cheap enough and subjectively appealing.
These are simply enough, SATA powered and have a controller so you can cycle through colors/effects.

Potentially worth considering a cheap(ish) RGB CPU cooler....

Remember though, a lot of TG cases trade off airflow for the 'look'. I doubt it'll be much worse than the Omen case but still, something to keep in mind.
