Re: Question about changing the computer case.
The XPS 210 is a slim form factor case right?
Prolly gonna be alot of problems. If the motherboard mounts, the ports at the back might not line up right. The power supply most likely will not mount, and is the disc drive a slim or standard? In addition, if fits, to make everything fit "nice" you might find that dell's power supply connectors are the exact size needed to reach, or extremely close. So...in a bigger case they may not reach. Also, good luck figuring out which pins to connect the front panel to on the motherboard as the motherboard was probably custom produced for dell.
And once you're done, you're left with a machine that has more pci ports on the case than the motherboard can support, where the back panel probably has empty spots on it, where card reader on the front may or may not work, and you're out the cost of the case + shipping and the time it took you.
I personally wouldn't bother with it unless you really need the space for a taller video card or heatsink that won't fit.
