Was thinking about gutting my old Dell Dimension 8200 [ P4, AGP Radeon HD 3450 (512MB), 2GB Rambus(sketchy ram, drops out sometimes/crashes)] and using the case and PSU to drop something newer into it for the kids to have a slightly better internet machine.

2 questions....

Is the Dell Dimension 8200 case/PSU able to take standard ATX mobo/CPU with stock cooler fans?

Is it worth putting money into to build an internet machine and whats best upgrade?

seems like for 100 bucks I can drop an A4 APU in a Llano (FM1) mobo and get a decent improvement...?

thoughts?

The case does not use a standard at form factor and cooling is horrible you'I'd be better off paying $20for a better case. Also the psu is proprietary as well the 8200 was before Dell started using standard power supplies.
