Default Replacement MOBO for Emachines et 1331g

I have given up hope on getting a new graphics card in hopes getting one that can run openGL 3.3 or better.
i do not want a new machine. I'm hoping that if i get a new motherboard it'll have some inter graded graphics that would have open gl 3.3 or better to run. It's for gaming. So is there a mobo i can put in this machine that would be compatible, just want open GL and it to be for windows 7. Oh wise internet wizards, is there hope?

I got some current upgrades for my machine, if they are not compatible I can replace them, just letting you all know so mabye it can help:

got a new power suply, works perfectly

Integrated graphics suck for gaming.
What kind of games were you hoping to play on it?

Fallout 4, i'm getting a 800 watt psu, my motherboard is broken. the pci-e slot snapped and there's no way a graphics card can stay in there, i tried. the fan ran for a little bit, it slipped out and my computer locked up. this happened 12 times. i need a new motherboard. any sugesstions of motherboards and motherboard related suggestions?

Anything even close to fallout 4, needs a dedicated GPU.

Not sure if the motherboard is a standard Mini-ATX. If it is, there are plenty of options.
What's good about AMD, is that they don't change sockets as often as Intel. So you can buy ether a AM3 or AM3+ socket motherboard and there are still plenty of those on the market.

However, you got to ask yourself, do you really want to upgrade a computer that old?
You could build a new one, and then use some of the parts from the old computer to save money.
I can't really recommend any motherboards for the AMD platform because i have little experience with AMD.
But in your case any cheap mini ATX AM3/+ motherboard will do.
