[motherboard] Dell ATX 24 pin mini adapter for Optiplex 780 moth

I don't know if this is possible, but I have a Optiplex GX620 to I use for my movie watching. I also have an Optiplex 780. I'm trying to put the motherboard from the 780 into the GX620. I can't find an adapter to switch the ATX in the GX620 to the 24 pin mini that is on the 780 board. It is a proprietary Dell 24 pin (I tried to use an adapter for an HP but the pins are not a match). The power supply for the GX620 is a 24 pin, which I found an adapter to get it down to a 20 pin, so if I could find a Dell mini pin it would work. Any idea if I can get one of these or if there is a OEM adapter that would work? Or any other suggestions? This is more for fun than necessity.

Will one of these work?

I got both of those. The 24 to 20 pin is fine, but the 24 pin mini isn't compatible with Dell. I've read that Dell changed the order of the wires/voltages and has one empty pin.

Maybe ATXPowerSupplies.com has what you need?

Found this video on YouTube...

They seem to have quite a selection of specialty power supply cables.
