Unless you are massively fond of the case, or you need to do a stealth upgrade, you are going to throw away far more than you end up using. I believe they are ATX, but you really won’t save much by using the Dell case. Jul 5, Posts: May 18, Posts: Mar 8, Posts:

As I am not that familiar with the form factors ATX and such I would like to know what motherboard if any would fit that case.

I had to dremel the PS space a bit to make it fit, and the connector for the lights was a single block – uptrade I popped the wires out of the block, wrapped tape around the copper connectors, and directly connected them to the board – ten minute task.

New motherboard for Dell Dimension XPS – Ars Technica OpenForum
I gave the result to my teenager, who is rather proud of my Gatewaythan runs at mhz If you can also find a celron cheap — but you still cant use your same memory, you still need to buy some SDRAM this should be pretty cheap these days.
The CD drive is old and slow, the hdd is also old and slow, and opinions on the video card have already been raised.

But that’s probably only worth it if you have saldering equipment and new connectors on hand. But your power supply would drive it but it has to be standard ATX.
Don’t bother trying to disect the ribbon cable that the Dell board uses. I believe they are ATX, but you really won’t save much by using the Dell case.
