Dell uses proprietary cases and PSU's.

Best thing your buddy can do is to get a new case and PSU with that mobo. And, if he does, he won't have to go back with a microATX.

Dont buy AGP. Its going to be phased out. Also, tell your friend nopt to buy your 5200. Its not that great of a card. Get a PCI-E 6600GT.

His friend is "not a real big gamer," so depending on what exactly he means by that, the FX5200 could be plenty. And just because AGP is being phased out, doesn't mean it's no good.
