Make sure you contact Dell first, and ask them if the system is propietary.
Ussually with a DELL, you need to purchase any upgrades from them..

I don't see you meeting any issues if you change the board.. but, could you just get us the following specs:

What kind of socket does your CPU have?
If you have a video card, other than onboard, is using an AGP or PCI slot?
What type of RAM are you currently using?
What kind of power connector are you currently using? (20 or 24 pin?)
What type of form factor is the board? (ATX, AT, ect.)

Giving us these details will help us to help you.

It'd be sweet to know specs, but if it's THIS guy:


Then, from the inside look, it's this:


This must be a P4 2.8GHZ, onboard video and 256MB RAM. My bet would be this dude:

ASUS P4PE2-X


I don't really know where you can get it in the UK, but try your local shop or something.

Ahh, good find LH..

You can try pricegrabber.com to see if it locates any shops close to you..
Or, you can try http://www.misco.co.uk/ for your hardware, which is TigerDirect, in the UK.

They are both AGP as well.
