Computer Case Upgrade?

Can I put the guts of a dell dimension 2400 in a thermaltake wing rs? PLEASE HELP ME OUT! THANKZ!

What it looks like for you is that most any new case you buy will work, albeit with some modification. Take a look at the back of your computer (manual) to see the layout of your mobo's IO connectors. Now look at the ThermalTake panel and the Xion panel. Note the difference in locations of everything but the monitor and printer ports. It sure looks like some cutting is in order.

On the positive side, it looks like the power supply will fit. You will just have to make sure the cables are long enough to reach the board when installed.

Your Dell mobo is a microATX form factor. The ThermalTake Wing RS (100, 101, 201, 301) will accept both microATX and standard ATX mobos. As long as the power supply (PS) has the correct connectors, you can use the case. If the PS doesn't have the correct connectors, you will have to buy and install one that does. Or, you could use the PS that came with the Dell.
