Gateway 835GM?

Postby CaseCo » Thu Jun 21, 2012 2:05 pm

I have scoured the web for what model of motherboard could possibly be in this computer but to no avail. I'm quite the DIY computer n00b and am trying to overhaul this old gateway 835GM media center tower. So along with what motherboard it has, I would appreciatiate if anyone could tell me if it's compatible with An AMD Phenom II x4 965. Also embracing my lack of knowledge, feel free to pitch in any advice you could give someone who has no idea what they're doing, thanks!

Welcome to the motherboards.org...

Specs

It is Intel based so Intel only CPU's... If it has a 2.8Ghz CPU, it is OK, and pretty much pointless trying to upgrade...

Motherboard... And if someone has 'flipped' the photograph for any reason, that board looks like a BTX one to me, which makes upgrading it pretty near impossible...
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...

It is BTX. Here's a pic without cooler, the 45 degree angle on the CPU and it being in the front of the board gives it away.
