Re: Super cheap build

Dell boxes come in several form factors. The "Desktop" is a fairly-standard micro-ATX tower case that accepts regular-sized expansion cards. Some of the other form factors allow only low profile expansion cards.

Re: Building a new gaming PC

There are less expensive Z97 motherboards that might suit your purposes. If you're not planning on SLI/Crossfire, I believe that Micro-ATX offers plenty of slots.

Re: Pentium G3258 without overclocking

If your computing needs are light and your budget is tight, the Pentium G3258 seems okay to me. Newegg has recently bumped the price up, but it's still just $170.65 to get a Pentium G3258 processor and a micro-ATX Z97 motherboard. You're saving $165 vs. a Core i5-4690K.
