Default Newegg Shipping and New Case

I am ordering a case on Newegg, the total comes to $58 with Fed-EX saver Shipping.

Here is the case I want:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144002

Will it work w/ my old Intel D845PT motherboard? Here is the link to the motherboard specs:

http://support.intel.com/support/mot.../cs-013206.htm

I am scared that the PSU won't work, the motherboard requires a 20-Pin PSU. Is that the standard or is 24-pin?

And finally, here is the link to the Dell 4400 I bought that I want to switch over:

http://support.dell.com/support/edoc...cs.htm#1101572

Could I be able to switch over the motherboard and the HD/CD-ROM w/ out having to buy new ones? I really don't want to have to RMA the case...

Now, I live in Ohio, and the warehouse is out in CA. They don't process orders until business days. And here is the problem, I am going on vacation on the 31st. Say they don't process the order until Tuesday, would it come before Saturday? Thanks!

If you are trying to switch a Dell, you are in for some heartache.

The PSU will not work with your mobo. If you hook it up and try to start it, you'll fry the mobo.

Your mobo may have Intel D845PT chips, but it is a proprietary
design. It might bolt in, but it might not.

Dell makes their comps this way on purpose.

Ok, so what should I do?

How do you know the PSU won't work? It is a 20 pin connector I found out, looks fine to me.

And I didn't buy it my mom bought it for her own, and she doesn't use comps anymore hardly so she gave it to me.

You could spring for a cheap Intel-compatable mobo and swap everything over... but you'd have to reinstall Windows.

Or you could swap out everything, PSU included. When a case is that cheap, the PSU is usually even cheaper...

Ok, look I just need to know how my Motherboard would fry, it doesnt make sense. The board is mATX, and the case is compatible w/ mATX, and the PSU and the motherboard is a 20-pin connector, so what is the deal?
