Yes, any 700c wheel is OK, as they all have the same rim diameter and fit the same tires. Try to look for one with similar rim width if you're still planning to use 38mm wide tires. Also make sure the cassette body and overall axle width matches yours.
Prices vary all over the board, though used ones are somewhat rare, since most are replaced for the same reason as yours.
You can save a bit of dough by transfering your QR skewer, and you'll need a tool to remove the cassette lockring and transfer the cassette. Usually, if you buy the new wheel from an LBS, they'll transfer your tire and cassette for little or no added charge.
