Will this ASUS MOBO fit in my Dell Dimension 3000 case? +K!
If I bought that MOBO will it fit in my dells case? How do I tell if it will or not?
One way to tell is find out the size of the motherboard currently in your Dell Dimension 3000 case.
If the motherboard in your Dell Dimension case is 12.0" x 9.6" or larger, then you're all set.
From what I've read, your motherboard uses the Intel 865GV chipset, and from my other readings, I believe that this motherboard is a MicroATX motherboard. So my guess is that it won't fit, unless you purchase a MicroATX motherboard.
That site shows that your current motherboard in the Dell configuration is "microATX ([b7a0f5f5f94]9.60 inches by 8.20 inches[/color7a0f5f5f94][/b7a0f5f5f94] [233.68 millimeters by 208.28 millimeters])"
That part in red is the problem. That's the size your motherboard has to be. You cannot use a standard ATX motherboard, like the one you originally wanted. (
Am I correct, dmorris68? D
The motherboard is - Dimensions 12.0" x 9.6"
How can I tell if this MOBO will fit in what case? Take this case for example.
This case has the dimensions Dimensions 17.6" x 8.1" x 19.7"
How do I tell if it will fit?
It will either specify the dimensions it accepts from a motherboard, or from the one you listed...
It lists the different motherboard compatibilities.
Motherboard Compatibility Standard ATX, Micro ATX, Baby AT, Mini ATX
It takes four types, including the one you want.
oh ok.. thanks.
This motherboard just says ATX, I guess that means Standard ATX?
don't try what?

Yea. That means it's standard ATX.
Spend some extra money and get this
Plus a decent PSU.
The video card you chose...is PCI-Express compatible. The motherboard you chose is AGP compatible. You can't use a PCI-E video card with an AGP motherboard.
I highly recommend getting a PCI-E motherboard. You'll be happier...AGP is worse than PCI-E.
heh.. yea. I'm getting the AGP version of it
You could probably get a PCI-E motherboard for around the same price. ?
If this is going to be a gaming rig, I'd suggest thinking about upping it to PCI-E. The video card will run much faster and it calculates things much as faster as well.
