I cant afford a new case right now, you think I'd be able to fit a new motherboard, processor, and graphics card inside of the Dell Dimension 4400 case?

This is the Dell Dimension 4400

And this processor

And this graphics card

I can't afford a new case, do you think the AMD motherboard will fit inside of the Dell Dimension 4400?
Usually newer motherboards can fit in older cases but you know how dell is with their weird desines. I just want to be sure.
What's your opinion? Do you think it will fit?

Very doubtful. Dell are a law unto themselves as the boards are unique and the board mountings more so unique.
You may find the PSU is non-standard as well, which was a common Dell concept from around the time that computer was originally made. Plug it into a board expecting standard wiring and it'll immediately invalidate your warranty and the board will probably never work again.
