I have a Dell Inspiron 560 desktop that I'm wanting to change the case for. I was looking at buying this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but I looked online and people said that dell makes their mobo's fitted for their cases. If this is not true, would I be able to use this case for my hardware?

the Dell Inspiron 560 uses a standard uATX MB, so it should align with the uATX mounting post in the case you selected.

if you are changing out the case, I recommend you chance out the PSU also. DELL only puts a 300w non-80+ certified PSU in that system. not big enough to support a good GPU

recommend either of these as they will support mid-high range GPU also
