It looks like an ATX form factor motherboard is currently in there.

You should be able to use any of the latest Intel X58 Chipset ATX sized motherboards.

My personal preference leans more towards an ASUS.

The following models also support the Core i7 Processor Extreme Edition:

P6T WS Professional
P6T6 WS Revolution
Rampage III Extreme
Rampage III Formula
Rampage III GENE
SABERTOOTH X58

Choice of model would be based on budget and desired features.

Before you get a new mobo, make sure the front panel connectors of the Dell case are compatible with the pins provided by your new mobo. You can do that by comparing your mobo, your Dell manual's descriptions, and the manual for the mobo you are thinking of buying.

Dell PCs typical have, eg, a series of 4 lights that indicate error conditions or a successful post. Standard mobos will not support those connections. Further, the other front panel connectors may differ from industry standards, may require rewiring, or may not work at all.
