Your link to Gateway website doesn't work.

From the posted image that does work, you appear to have one of those All-in-one PC in a monitor job. Can't tell for sure from the picture but if it is, it's most likely not upgradable.

Below is a link to some more info on the MB in your computer, this will hopefully help you to decide whether to upgrade or build a new system,
http://www.ascendtec...001137R&eq=&Tp=
Below is a link to your proposed MB, are you aware the existing MB is a BTX form factor and your proposed MB is a Micro ATX form factor http://www.msi.com/i...o=&prod_no=1815
Also be aware that if you do manage to find a MB that is fit for the purpose, before you can install and use any new hardware you will have to upgrade the stock psu, the one fitted is 275W and so can just about run the present set-up, here is the cheapest Newegg can provide http://www.newegg.co...1-065-_-Product
