i ask because well somebody where i live cut the power and damaged almost all of my internal computer components im getting replacements and im wondering if i need to replace the case as well  

 

when i removed the motherboard i forgot to unplug all the components including that of the front panel and im wondering if that can damage the case it self

 

or if surges or power cut or outages can damage the case

 

so should my case be fine i might i need to replace it too? 

 

and im referring the things attached to the case like the front panel and the cords attached to the case 

 

i always wear an anti-static wrist band when working on computers

Surges can damage any circuitry. Safer to plug your expensive electronic equipment into UPS's (Uninterruptible Power Supply's).

doubt it, check for any kinds of "burns" or 'marring" - if all clear,  begin the "bench/test build" as you already planned to  :)
