By cheap I hope you mean free
You've basically bought yourself an empty case with PSU if you're gonna replace the motherboard. Cause you'll need motherboard, CPU, RAM. And good luck squeezing anything in a Dell tower, they dont give you a lot of room to play.

In my experience Dell computers are generally well made with some interesting design features BUT they use a lot of non-standard parts so that you have to go to Dell for any spares.
Since it only cost you €30 and you are willing to put in a new CPU, mobo, RAM and hard drive I would be inclined to bite the bullet and write this €30 off - if you can't find somebody willing to pay you that much for what appears to be a working computer - and buy a new standard case and PSU as well. Their PSUs are the same dimensions as any others but the mains input and switch are differently located, so they won't fit a standard case.
Sorry if I am raining on your parade, but that's my opinion !
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
