I purchased this computer when it was still new and with mid range features for working with Adobe Products.
I recently started using it for gaming and it works great, but I am afraid that it won't be up to par soon for new games that will come out in the near future. So im thinking on upgrading the Motherboard first and keeping the components it's currently using.

It has a Intel i7-870 @ 2.93GHz processor
and a HD Radeon 5770 Graphics Card

Now I want a Motherboard that can last me a couple of years from now that has all the new features and is compatible with the stuff I have right now.

Can u guys recommend me some products?

Hey there... I'm sure there will be plenty of guys on here who will be happy to help you out. Answering some quick questions might help us help you better.

What parts are you considering keeping and what parts do you want to replace?
What kind of gaming are you thinking you'll be doing in the future?
What type of budget do you have?
Do you have an OEM OS to install (once you replace your motherboard chances are your Dell disk, if you have one, won't work)?
