New Case for Dell L Series

I realize now that I was penny wise and pound foolish when I bought a Dell Dimension L-1000 for my daughter to use at college. Expansion? Fuhgetaboutit. Power? A whopping 125 watts. Bays? Only if there's a full moon.
As I'm cheap, I'd rather buy a new case with a decent (250 watt+) power supply. Any suggestions? Is it even possible to put a Dell mobo into another case? THANKS!!


I know enuff to be dangerous. :tongue:

  1. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that I read somewhere that Dell wires thier power supplies different. A different power supply would fry the dell board. If you get a new PSU, I believe you would have to get a new mobo.

    If you can find it on the internet, it HAS to be true! :smile:
  2. my friend tried a new motehrbaord in a dell becuase the old one died. it blew the power supply out luckly not the board

    what is better then a 7000 rpm, a 8000 rpm delta. to cause more noise to kill your ears :smile:
  3. Dell uses proprietary parts so you can't. The powersupply, motherboard, and case are proprietary. You'll have to replace all three.
