Default Could I use my old PC's Case for a New Build?

So my system got fried from a lightning strike that hit my house. Luckily, insurance is covering it. Im just going to build a new system. I will make it very high performance (like $800-$900) but could I use my old pc's case, optimally? Asides from holding the whole thing together and encasing it from dust, what do you really need it for? I know ventilation comes in but would it be important if I was going to use the high-end parts? Because the case was designed to hold the old low-end parts. It's a tower case so everything will probably fit. I appreciate your help, thanks.

do you have a name on the computer?
as long it is not something ridiculously bad then i would say you can use it.
i just have this opinion that a good PC desserv a good case.
better airflow gives better overclocking results, and thats important if you ask me. but most important is that it can hold what you need and looks good.
i also very much appreciate a good cable management system.
