    Sounds like a plan, try to get one with an i5 4570 or better, 8GB ram, 500GB+ HD and windows 10

    looks like the dell 9020 uses a proprietary PSU - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dell-i5-Optiplex-9020-Tower-PC/183104402313?hash=item2aa1df7389:g:wK0AAOSwQglamWp6 doesn't use the standard 20/24 pin motherboard connector as i wrongly assumed

    yeah slim towers (SFF - small form factors) are limited in hard drive space and graphics cards, they need a LP - low profile version, i have a gtx 750ti in a dell 7010 SFF, plays most games at pretty high details at a decent framerate. Best to go for a full tower then you can fit a few hard drives, full size graphic cards, then if needed, a different PSU as well. it is easy to build yourself, look on youtube for guides,plenty of computer forums as well for help and suggestions, if you want to go that route, a budget in mind it will make your decision easier To give you some idea of costs, my GTX1060 6GB cost £239 back in oct 2016, now they are over £300.

    best put it back into the loft. have you tried eBay for a second hand Dell tower ?? have had a few dell 7010 or 3010 (SFF) from various sellers without issue, a few generations old but still perfectly fine, slightly newer versions are 9010 or 9020. you could always look at building yourself,been building pc's since windows 95

    depends what model and spec your dell tower is, older models use different mounting points for the motherboard, more than likely the PSU will be very low powered (240-300watts) unit, the power on button/switch may only work with dell motherboard as the connectors maybe proprietary. if the CD/DVD drive is SATA you can reuse that, IF the power connector isn't a 2 wire dell only one that is, ram maybe reused if its DDR3, DDR4 is fairly recent so guess it won't be that, harddrive should be able to use, again depends if it's SATA or not - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA might be best to start from scratch as it will be easier in the long run and keep the dell for a backup pc. what do you use a pc for, gaming, movie editing or just browsing the internet ? what sort of budget have you got in mind ?
