I was wondering if i could put an am3+ motherboard in my dell optiplex 745 desktop, and take out the dell stock motherboard? I want to put an amd eight core processor in my computer but the dell socket for cpu is lga 775. Please help and comment and tell me if i can.
can i transfer my dell component that are in my system in to a mid tower case as it is right now, or do i need a bigger motherboard
Any new mid-tower case you buy will have an ATX form factor so the current BTX motherboard will not be able to be mounted into that case because the expansion slots and rear panel I/O connectors on the BTX motherboard are not in the same location as for the ATX form factor. The BTX power supply won't mount properly either.
