You should be able to connect your hard drive to the new mobo via IDE connection no problem. I don't know if that new mobo will actually fit in the Dell case though. And you will also need to reinstall Windows to your hard drive because of the hardware change.

the mobo might be a ATX and i think the dell cases only support Micro ATX
