Default want to replace dell E310 motherboard

Hey, this is my first post, and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to replace my dell E310 motherboard with a motherboard that will support the current processor, ram, and hard drive. I guess the main question I have is what is the spec for motherboard compatability, or in other words, what motherboards are compatable with certain cases. Thanks a lot.

Dell cases and mother boards are proprietory. It is difficult to use a dell case with a new non dell motherboard. I would spend $50 to $100 on a new case and not worry about reusing the old dell one.
