You'll need a new PC case and power supply most likely. The Dell Dimension will almost certainly be non-standard and it will prove impossible to fit any other board in the Dell case.

If you buy a case that includes a power supply that you plan to use then you should be sure to buy a case from a company that makes good PSUs. Even with the better companies they usually bundle their cheapest line into PSUs. Some cheap companies bundle in PSUs almost guaranteed to fry your new MOBO. Look into Coolermaster, Antec, or Thermaltake.

I'm almost 90% sure ur new board won't fit in your Dell case

Dell has a history of using proprietary boards or makeing their cases fit EXACTLY around the mobo they give you

I know this from past experience (my 9100's mobo is friggin on the left side of the case)
