Is it possible to replace the motherboard in my Dimension 2400
(celeron)?

If so, any recommendations for an inexpensive board with an AGP slot?

I'm in UK, if it helps...

the case has non standard front panel connectors which means that you will
not be able to connect the power button to the mother board. you could work
around this problem of not being able to turn the system on and off be
replacing the power supply with one that has a switch on it and setting the
bios in the new motherboard to turn on when power is restored... but it
really isn't worth the effort... just get a new case to go with your new
motherboard.

Yes, the Dell 4600 motherboard will pop right in I believe. The Dell Forums
might help with that information. I seem to remember some others posting
info about that.

just replace the celeron with a more rubust P4 with the same FSB (400/533)
for a nice boost in performance.
