Default What motherboards will fit in my case?

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 and I want to replace the motherboard with something that can handle more that 4gbs of ram and can use an i7 chip. What motherboard style do I need to use in my case? Or would it be better to grab a new one?

Depends on which particular model you have, but knowing Dell you will need a new case before you can use a good motherboard.

I have the original 530, not the S or A, B, C which I believe were the other models. 3gb's ram and 2.4ghz Intel core duo quad. Thanks for the info though, I'll look into a new case. Any suggestions?
