Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop ?

Will a dell gx280 motherboard fit into a gx260 (dell) case?

Answers :

If it is a slim gx260 case, it might not. If it is the wide case, it will, but the two motherboards have different power supplies. You will need to use a gx280 power supply to power it on. However, you can use a gx270 motherboard in a gx260 case without changing the power supply.
