Will an Intel DQ965CO microBTX motherboard (Socket LGA775) be compatible with my old dell dimension 5150?

And if anyone knows, are atx power supplies compatible with btx boards? I can't find any btx psus online :(  and the stock psu is only 305 watt which isn't really enough as I'm planning to upgrade and add parts.

For example would this http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/powersupp...
be compatible on the microbtx motherboard?

5150 uses a ribbon cable for the front panel connection that won't be compatible with the Intel board , best to just build a new system

I don't necessarily need to use the front panel connectors, would it work if I didn't use it?

Or would it be possible to find a ribbon cable to 4-pin ATX12V adapter?

That would be the power button, hard drive and power led, USB and Firewire ports ( if it has firewire ), I think you would want to use those
Unless you want to go deeper into modifying the case and try to add your own
