How easy is it to change case?

I suppose the clue's in the title....

How easy is it? What do I need to look for to ensure my current set up will port to the new case?

So long as the motherboard will fit there should be no problem so long as you give yourself space and don't rush.

You need to know the "form factor" of your current setup (probably ATX)

cases are built to suit various form factors.
Once you have the correct case then its just a matter of swapping everything into the new case (not a 5 minute job)

I've just upgraded the power supply and graphics card and it's getting a liitle 'warm' inside.

ATX power supply and socket 775 housing a core 2 quad Q6600. Mobo Asus P5BW-LA.

I'm not one who is usually influenced by computer aesthetics, but hell I like the look of that, Thatslife.
