Dells are mostly propriatry parts and getting a new mobo wont really help because all the pins and wires (for power, I/O, HDD led etc.) will not fit any other mobo except Dells. If you have a good knowledge of computers then you can adapt things to work, if you not so good then you are stuck with what you got because Dell don't want you to upgrade or overclock (more work for there support lines).

You may want to have a look at this http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=41097

Hope this helps,
Chief.

Try http://www.PowerLeap.com . You can upgrade a P-II or P-III PC-100 motherboard to a 1.4ghz Celeron for $100+-. I have done this to several Dell GX1 P-III 450mhz and 500mhz. That with 512MB of low density Ram and you have a perky little computer.
