Default Moving Dell Parts Into New Case...

Ok so here is the sitch...

I have a 3 year old Dell Dimension 4400:


1.6 Ghz P4 (Upgrading it to 2.4 Ghz)
768MB PC2700
ATI Radeon 9550

Now I know for sure the motherboard is microATX. I just bought a standard 400W ATX PSU, 18A @ 12V. Now I want to move the motherboard and all the parts over. But my only concern is getting the power button and led's connected, if even possible.

So here are my questions:

1. Could my mATX motherboard go into my new ATX case?
2. Would my 400W 18A PSU work with it? Both are 20-pin
3. Is there any possible way to get the power cables w/ the case to work with the dell?

Doubtful. Dells, especially the older ones, are propritory.

If nothing else, you can spice wires to extend them.
