Some questions about my vostro 200 mini tower

Ok, first off, i added a  new  graphics card a few months ago and i'm wondering if that voided any warranties.
seond, i have asked this before but can the dell motherboard fit in an antec 900 case without modding? Can the mobo support all the fans in the case. I'd get a new power supply for the connections.

The board will fit but you'll still have some things (such as the wiring of the front panel and the nonstandard back panel) to figure out, so if you're looking for a no-modification drop-in, the answer is no.

The Dell front panel connects in a single block of unmarked pins.   You will need to figure out which pin does what to connect it in the new case.

Does moving the parts from the case into the antec void the warranty?

Yes, install all the components into a non-Dell case would void the warranty, as would using a non-Dell motherboard.

You would use your new case wiring it will work fine it will have 1x1 or 1x2 standard header connectors so the Dell one block connector is not a factor.Usb and audio are standard ATX.
