What do you want to replace? The whole thing? The cartridge? The handle?
Unless you have access from the rear or are willing to make the hole bigger from the front (they make special decorative plates to cover that larger hole), you generally don't have enough room to replace the whole valve - only service what you have. If you are willing to replace the whole thing, then the sky is the limit, you can use almost anything. What was your plan or desire?
