Is your GX260 the small desktop model or a full tower? If it's a tower, it "might" fit. It really depends on the mounting mechanism. I know at one point Dell used a sliding slot mount for the motherboards. If that's the case, the only motherboard that will fit without modifying the case is a genuine dell board.

Well, I would suggest opening it up and see what the mounting looks like. I had a GX270 laying around and I checked it. It uses the slot retention mechanism like I mentioned. I can take a pic if that would help. Any retail motherboard you can buy has screw holes, not slots, for mounting into cases.

it will probably fit in, however you will not be able to hook up the case as most Dell computers use a proprietary front panel hookups, as in you will not be able to use the power button etc. from the case. Otherwise it will probably work.
