I don't think that model was ever offered with an Intel CPU.

 

To the OP, you are going about this backward.  There is no guarantee ANY other motherboard except your stock motherboard will work in that case.  From the pictures I can find, the case and power supply location might not be 100% ATX compliant. I am unsure if the backplate will swap for a new motherboard, or if any sort of cooler will clear the power supply location.

 

If you are serious, look for another case and power supply to start your build.

If I understand your question correctly, you want to upgrade your Packard Bell system to one that will accommodate an Intel i5 CPU. 

 

Is That right?

I assume you are in UK? A quick google search gave results for this model being available in UK.

 

Is this the system you're asking about?

Here is kind of a review of that system, the user set it up as mythtv setup. That is they are using it as a Home Theatre PC. See the first photo there, with the side cover removed the (rather large) grey/silver box is the power supply. Due to it being located there will make upgrading that system very difficult. Also judging by the back side of the case it looks to have only 2 expansion slots, meaning that a standard ATX or even a micro ATX motherboard would not fit. Maybe an ITX or micro ITX board would work?

Here's some mITX boards that look like they could work and are all good for an i5 or even use an i3, i7 or Xeon.
