To answer your question which to say the least is exceedingly sparse in detail is going to be tricky.

Is this your motherboard? Mobo. If so that is a Intel P 111 motherboard. Do you know what processor you have.By the way this is old.

There is one on eBay Mobo+CPU.

As the previous poster has said a bit more info is required. What kind of case is it going into and what size is the psu?

Hi sorry for not giving enough information the mobo certainly looks identical to mine the case has got packard bell and intel caleron on it and it was running windows XP. Google tells me its a P61WF Motherboard + Intel Celeron 1.2GHz CPU. I was wanting to put a motherboard in that was capable of running windows 7 if it was possible but would that be to costly I suppose? Not sure of the psu but I suppose that would also have to be changed but any other information would be most helpful Thanks.

To be honest, you would be better off - if your budget allows - buying a new computer.

Lots of info on ClickHere upgrade motherboard Packard Bell and has chart

If it was me, I would be looking for a brand new computer as your PSU probably won't be powerful enough either and it'll be getting a bit worn out.

* Floppy drive* Useful???? The RAM will be virtually useless also, CD dive will be IDE, most,if not all optical drives these days are Sata.
