    Dell Vostro 200 Motherboard

    does anyone know what motherboard is used in a Dell Vostro 200?

    I have a Vostro 200 that I have 'almost' never used coz I have nowhere to keep it use it for HTPC use...

    I was thinking of selling this one and buying a new HTPC machine (I already have a coreduo HTPC but want a faster one) - is it worth just putting the motherboard in a new case?

    Essential pointers that I'm looking for are:
    1. What motherboard do these systems use.
    2. What cases can I get under 40cms in depth. Height and Width are not essentially a problem, but would like if the height is under/around 20 cms.
    3. Alternatively, how much is the system worth now? C2D 2200/500GB/2GBWifi/DVD-RW


    If anyone is kind enough to comment please?

    No1 knows nuffin'?

    well the post didn't make much sense, it reads that you have 2 pcs and just want a faster one?
    Why the size restriction is it to go in a tv cabinet?, i personally use an amd 3600 with twin tuner for htpc so why you need a faster one?
    tbh xp won't go any faster without spending a LOT OF MONEY,

    nearly sure dell use btx standard mobo's which may make it harder to upgrade case

    I have 2 systems, I was planning to sell the HTPC (core duo) and use the Dell for HTPC uses... but it won't go anywhere (airing cupboard or TV cabinet) .. I need something with HTPC dimensions, the board is made by Foxconn but I'm not sure if its micro ATX or something else... need to confirm that before I stump up money for a new case...
