Building a Custom Computer in an Empty Alienware Aurora R5 Case?

Hi. I saw a brand new empty Alienware Aurora R5 case for sale on the internet. It gave me the idea to build a custom computer with non-Alienware parts inside.

However, I am wondering if the empty Alienware case would be compatible with non-Alienware components or if there are proprietary cables or mountings that won't work with off the shelf components.

For example, will a normal ATX power supply fit? Will the case accept a regular I/O shield? Can the case LEDs be connected to a regular motherboard, etc?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
