I can't find any info on the Foxconn board but the FIC board is uBTX and measures 10.5in (H) x 10.4in (W).
If the original board is a BTX (or uBTX) form factor then there's reason for the FIC board not to fit in the case.
As for the rest of the specs on the FIC board, it has integrated video plus a PCIe x16 slot, 2 PCI slots, 4 memory slots (DDR33/400), IDE plus SATA and of course a 939 cpu socket. I can't guarantee it will fully support your processor but it probably will.
The only thing you'll probably need to do after the boards are swapped, is re-install the OS.
Hope this helps

My wife uses this computer for internet surfing and word processing. The real issue is do I part out this computer (only 2.5 years old) or find another solution like a different motherboard. The Foxconn board is $250-$300 new and $225 refurbished. A used FIC board is $50-$75. That is why I asked if anyone knew if the FIC board was interchangeable with the Foxconn board. Any additional input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Looks to me like the two boards should be pretty interchangeable. It would certainly be a cheaper solution than buying a new computer
