I have a Dell Dimension C521 and believe the MB and PSU are BTX. Can I switch with another BTX MB and PSU?

Thanks,

Pete

If they're really BTX components, the answer is probably yes. Of course, I'd think that simply buying a better case might make more sense if you're replacing all the guts.

You can shove in a standard ATX PSU into the case... bends the case a bit. But as far as upgrading the Dell itself? Uh sell it and get something else... HP, Compaq whatever.

Dell uses the now DEAD standard of BTX... they are pretty much the ONLY maker of BTX systems (intel killed it last november) - Gateway still make 1-2 models with BTX, but once they're done with those - no more (thousands of pre-built cases and mobos).

Sell the Dell... build or buy something else would be easist and a way to get some MONEY back.

What would be the best way to go about selling this PC? It is virtually new, with 9 Months left on the warranty, 80 GB Sata HDD, DVD/CD-ROM, AMD 3600+ 64x2 Duo Core, and 512 MB RAM. Approximately how much would I be able to get for this?
