PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM/hard drive cage

Question
I have a  Dell. PC and I love the tower.
Now I am going to keep the tower even when I upgrade the motherboard.

But the hard drive cage only holds 2 hard drives.

Can the cage be removed and let me put a new cage that will hold more?

I have an Inspection 660.

Thanks

Answer
Not unless you have metal working skills. Manufacturer cases aren't made to be worked on.
It's even entirely possible that you wouldn't be able to get a new motherboard to fit.

Honestly, I'd really suggest checking out custom cases. There's hundreds, maybe thousands, of different kinds and designs of cases from many different case manufacturers. You may very likely find one you like even more than the Dell case.
