A question about a specific computer case

I have a computer building question. would a dell dimension 4400 case be able to hold modern parts like would a motherboard and all the other stuff fit correctly?

Most Dell computers are custom made, you would have to check the measurements of the motherboard. They also have custom wiring, so your front panel connections may be different.

I would think so. It looks like a atx case to me.




This appears to be the mounting bracket.

And a motherboard itself.


I have seen several different styles of motherboard so i would say you could swap it out just fine.

I would say that you could probably use an atx mobo but for sure you could use a Micro ATX mobo. It is the step down from ATX

You should probably measure the mounting bracket screws and mobo to make sure as my opinions are only based off of pictures from the web.

Edit.

Based on previous post be extra careful. Like i said im basing this off web pictures as i have no real specs as i haven't found any.

Some Dell cases use a odd size psu and it can be difficult to install a normal atx psu, that and odd front bay covers are the only thing I have encountered with Dell cases.

From what I'm seeing, that MOBO is definitely not ATX and does not appear to be microATX. If the mounting plate pictured is where the MOBO mounts (as it appears to be), it is definitely nonstandard.

New cases are not all that expensive; you would be better off getting one of them and make a completely new build rather than trying to make the Dell work.
