Question about Dell Optiplex GX520 (XG309) Motherboard
No you can't. The Optiplex system board is a BTX type, and the Dimension uses an ATX style. The BTX board was supposed to be the new standard, with the layout changed to improve cooling air flow. Unfortunately, the I/O connectors (keyboard, etc.) aren't in the same place as on ATX boards, and you can't just drop the BTX board into the same case. (This is one of the reasons the new design didn't catch on. Seems people didn't like the idea of shelling out for a new case as well as the board.)
