Hello i was wondering if computer cases will accept most motherboards..

From the research done, your motherboard will most likely be ATX Form. There's five types, but the ones you will ever need to know are these: micro-ATX and ATX. Micro-ATX is bigger than ATX (obviously). So you're planning on getting another case then you need to get a case which supports ATX Form factor. Most ATX cases support micro-ATX but micro-ATX cases don't support ATX motherboards.
Remember to always look at the size specifications when buying components to fit inside your case. ;)
