You can use that motherboard and CPU combo if you get a new case, however, you should keep a few things in mind. First, you will need to repurchase Windows due to licensing restrictions. That is, unless you have a full, boxed retail copy, not an OEM edition. Second, that is an old motherboard and CPU you have in your link so you are already out-of-date. Third, if you are going to be reusing the your current case, your current motherboard is micro-ATX so you may not be able to fit a standard ATX motherboard inside. With video editing, you may want to get a more powerful RAM, CPU, and motherboard combination.

Motherboard: ASUS M4N68T-M AM3 NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - This is a very basic motherboard for AMD CPU's. It is a micro-ATX motherboard that takes DDR3-1333 or 1600 memory. $49

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - All AM3-only motherboards require DDR3 memory to run. Remember, with 4GB or more of memory, you need a 64-bit operating system to use it all. $94

CPU: You have a number of choices here to go with your budget. You can get the AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz ($139), AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz ($150), AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz ($160), or the best quad core AMD has, the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz ($180). The last two CPU's are Black Edition, which means their multiplier is unlocked making overclocking very easy.

That case could work. I would also suggest the COOLER MASTER ELITE 335 RC-335-KKN1-GP Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case since it is probably quieter and shipping is free. Cases can be expensive to ship. If you are getting a mid-ATX tower, you can get a better motherboard since micro-ATX motherboards should only be used in smaller cases. If you have the extra room inside a case, a standard ATX motherboard is best as components are more spread out. I would suggest the ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard. You can keep the same RAM (Newegg has DDR3-1600 listed as the only RAM it supports, but ASRock's site has 1333 in addition to 1600 as compatible) and CPU I have above.
