Very hard. You'd have to drill off the back and make it suitable for a Dell mobo. Also, the PSUs aren't always standard sizes, so you'd have to make sure that would fit.

If you want that case, it'd just be easier in the long run to start new.

Considering i just bought my dell and i'm 16, buying new parts, new everything is not going to happen

i really like this case and i would do anything in my power to make it work, i mean i would replace the psu, video card and maybe the motherboard..(wait thats basically starting over lol)

the point is... could it be possible to do by myself or would i need help from lets say a computer shop..

i would sell my soul for that case..

It'd probably be easier to sell your soul.

A computer shop MAY be able to do it, but chances are they'd charge you an arm and a leg. Not to mention if you did get a new PSU it'd have to be a Dell compatible one of the right size, which would also cost an arm and a leg.

I would get a new heatsink regardless you can find good ones on newegg for $35-$50 like this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061
or a cheaper one, works well, actually got one for my CPU and works great
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134

And as for the mobo, are you planning on crossfire or not?
