Default Mothe board upgrade?

Does anyone know if it'd be possible to instead of building an all out new system, just replace my mobo?

My motherboard sucks, all it has is PCI slots, and I can't upgrade anything, so can i buy a new mobo / procesor, so I can get better upgrades in teh future?

So, my question is, can I switch a new motherboard for a new one?

yeah you could definitely do that. depending on what processor you want, you need to find a mobo that supports that processor. and depending on which, brand of videocard you prefer you could get an SLi mobo or Crossfire mobo if you really want to future proof your system.
