Default old comp need new PSU

Have a old dell computer and want to fix it up but the PSU is like
200watts or something sad like that but anyways it has a 478 socket
P4. Its a 2400 so it a smaller case and was wondering if I could mod my case or install my PSU externaly instead of internaly.Or should I get a new case, but I would like to use the old mobo for a little becuase my dad will be using it for a while before i go force on it. Would the mounts on the mobo I have currently be the same as the new case.Or should I buy a barebone kit that supports intel.

you're going to have issues with wires reaching, and you'll have to afro engineer your own mounting device. It can be done, yes, but why..?
