When you build your own computer, especially if you regularly upgrade your hardware, it is a good idea to buy a new case every three or four years. As you upgrade your machine the case may require modifications. Also, having a new case and power supply with a warranty for a year or more not only can increase performance, but it also protects your investment for longer.
Always be aware of new technologies and component architectures. If an upgrade you wish to purchase is not going to fit in your case or be compatible in some way, it's better to go with a new case and the components you really want. Transferring everything to a new case is not that difficult and is definitely worth it in the end.
