My current pc is a dell dimension 4400. Im building a new pc, so anyways, will a p4c800-e fit in it?

I don’t think you are not going to be able to upgrade that system without switching out the PSU as well. Dell has special proprietary connections between the MOBO and PSU.

I have an asus p4c800-e deluxe and my folks have a dell their home. I've worked a little on the dell system and I I'm _pretty_ sure (not certain) that the dimensions were very similar (mobo being same sizes). Hope this helps at least a little.

Just about all new mobo's these days come with new I/O back panels to fit the board. According to the pics on Newegg, the P4C800E has the back panel.

The only recently produced board (besides the cheapies of course) that didnt come with an I/O panel was the Abit AT7-MAX.

The wiring for the front panel connector is non-standard. Dell use a ribbon for the front panel connector with unique pin assignments. The motherboard looks to be a cross between a MATX and an ATX motherboard. You need to mod the back of the case to accept a standard ATX powersupply.

You know it might be worth it to get a new case considering how goofy dell's stuff is. Unless you wanna have a bad assed custom computer in a Dell case... I always thought that would be neat - otherwise I would find a cheap case from newegg or directron.
