-StaticX-Dell is not going to waste time and money making a different interface for there computers....[/QUOTE]

You'd be amazed by how stupid Dell is with this problem. They do stick proprietary mobos in a lot of their systems (a proprietary PSU's too). This is espically true in their 'value' (read 'crap') systems. But it dosen't seem like he's getting a dirt cheap setup, so I wouldn't expect he'd have this problem in the computer he's selected.

[QUOTE=Videoslave]Lets see for gaming no way GMA 900 = crap Frist off it sucks the shit out of your CPU and memorey.

Read the post, he said that he's going to swap his video card out of his current computer into the new one.

Yet again I stress to you that you chose a computer with a better processor. The P4's aren't worth the money anymore. Intel ships Conroe's (aka Core 2 Duo's) tomarow (thur.). Wait a few days.

I was refering to the expansion slots, not the entire mobo itself. the PCI, AGP and PCI-Express slots are NOT propreitary, same with the RAM slots and CPU socket. The only special dell only parts on a dell motherboard are the actual mounting holes themselves, and the power supply plugin (and the PSU itself), All dell motherboards are made this way, including the old one i had, and the one i'm using now.

Forgive me, I miss understood you.

As for your new build watch out for the PSU since it's likely proprietary.
