This is your original motherboard: ... GVSR.shtml

These models come with a Bestec power supply that should be replaced as soon as possible, they kill motherboards and other components.

You can fit any micro-ATX board. But you need to replace the processor/memory and probably video card (or buy motherboard with onboard video). You will need to reinstall windows as well, so if you still have a running machine, backup your data now.

Do not assume anything
