Looking for a different motherboard for XPS 700

I have an old XPS 700 that is most definitely out of warranty and the motherboard has died. Since the case and everything else in it is perfectly fine, I thought that now would be a good time to upgrade and get a better board. I did contact Dell and found out that I can upgrade to an XPS720 through them and got all of the required parts info.

My question is this: Are there any proprietary parts in the XPS 700 that would not allow me to buy a motherboard from a different manufacturer, like ASUS or some one else? Will the PSU, connectors or something else only work with Dell products?

Thanks for your help
