    Hello and thanks for everyone reading.
    Basically, my dad's friend hooked me up with a gaming PC a while back it was upgraded from an old 'Dell Precision T7915 Workstation', the GPU was replaced several times and now i have a 1060 6GB. However because it's base is still an old 2011 work PC it has a huge bulky motherboard that has a FCLGA2011 socket and i have a Xeon e5 2643 3.30 GHz and all though i have 16 RAM in total it is 1600 MHz DDR 3 and im sure it is a huge bottleneck so i have a few questions
    1) Does the original T7915 case has support for ATX motherboards
    2) If so, will switching to ryzen 3 1200 and 2x8 2993 MHz RAM be worth it
    3) If no should i just buy a new case
    4)Is there some non-conventional way of putting an atx motherboard into this bulky case (honestly dont care about aesthtics case is non transparant anyway).
    Thanks so much for helping
    If any information is missing please do ask and i will provide information to help you with helping me :)

    Dell stuff is proprietary ie it is made to dell specs and not industry standard specs. While it might be possible to fit a standard atx motherboard in the case, you are much better off getting a real case.
    Ryzen 3 is an entry level processor series. It is designed for basic use ie running office, email, etc NOT gaming. Ryzen is capable of incredible performance IF you go with at the very least a ryzen 5. Just to give you an idea of the capability of ryzen, I have a ryzen 2700X [overclocked to 4.0] and also an intel 7600K [overclocked to 4.5gig] On a single core benchmark, both systems are pretty equal with the intel having a slight advantage. On any multicore bench, the ryzen literally blows the intel out of the water; doubling the cinebench cpu score. On realbench, the ryzen out scores the intel by approx 40%
    It is like the intel should not even show up for the party.

    I've edited your post for language. One instance was mild profanity and the other was a potentially offensive word referring to the social status of a certain group of people, particularly when used in this context. Neither is necessary to convey messages in a computer technical support forum. Thanks for understanding.

    You can do what you want; the ryzen 3 remains an entry level processor.
