I am trying to replace my motherboard with the exact same one but can't find what I need to order it. I've done searches but keep finding different answers.
From my searching I find that it is a Nvidia 520LE.
With much tact and diplomacy, I would like to 'talk' to you straight up.
That motherboard is junk.
The motherboard is just an ordinary, ATX form factor motherboard. The most common used form factor size, used in personal computers.
Uses the Nvidia nForce 4 chipset.
By the time you buy an exact replacement motherboard, you will have spent the same, or more, than you could spend for a much better motherboard. (That will fit! Only the I/O shield at the back of the computer, may not line up with the motherboard below. The motherboard does come with an I/O shield anyway)
I found from my recent search also this motherboard,
Instead of the Socket 939 processor socket, or AM2 processor socket, you have now, you will have an AM2+ processor socket.
If your processor you have now, is an AM2 processor socket model, it will work on this motherboard.
Your ram memory won't work. You have DDR ram memory. This motherboard uses DDR2 at 800MHz. (Or also can use DDR2 at 1066MHz)
This = a PLUS!
You can buy 2GB's of DDR2 ram memory that operates at 800MegaHertz, for $30 at Tigerdirect. (Patriot Dual Channel-PC6400. It's two ->1GB sticks of dual channel capable ram)
Uses the AMD (Nvidia based) 780G Northbridge chip, and the AMD SB700 Southbridge chip.
Here are the specifications of this motherboard straight from ECS,
