Wow can you get anymore vague?

It would have to support mATX I believe, and a high PSU wouldn't do too well with it.

You have to buy a case, motherboard, power supply and a operating system. Then yeah you can tranfer all the parts and rebuild.

Good Luck.

Because dell have recovery copy's that only work on the dell that they came with. I am not even sure if the CD KEY is good with other copy's...

If its the same parts, i don't see a reason y he needs a new mobo,psu, and os. If the mobo and psu fits, than no new os.

I guess u could drill holes in the case to fit the psu (dell psu's are different sizes then others). and dell mobos are gay and dont like anti-dell cases.
