If you mean can you use your old case from your previous computer,possibly yes but not recomended. I seriously doubt your power supply from old computer will be any where powerful enough or even have the correct fittings to be able to use again.
Please fill in your user cp so that we can see what your specs are of your current build.

Honestly though, you should do some serious reading before you drop money on parts you know little about.
If you can, spend more money on a better video card or CPU you'll be even better off.
I'm just working off of the bundle systems they have on sale at the moment. It's nearly 4am, night.

the motherboard should support nicer CPUs if you wanna nice upgrade latter down the road. Same goes for GPU (Video card) but the one in the system should run everything you mentioned without problems.
