I just purchased a Optiplex 780 and it had XP on it. I have a license for Windows 2003 server Standard Edition SP2 that I put on the computer. Does any one know where I can get the drivers for the devices? Dell doesn't list that under their site for that model.

Since this was designed as a desktop Dell will not have drivers ported for Server 2003. Your only real option is to go to the manufacturers website for each item you need drivers for and get them that way.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

You didn't change the motherboard or audio and video devices, you only changed the operating system. This being the case the drivers for the Optiplex will work.
