Question about Computers & Internet
Would like to purchase a motherboard upgrade for my son's computer. I called Gateway, and they only have the original replacement. I know there are options for upgrades, but I can't get a straight answer from any company I've tried. Gateway suggested that I contact you.
Maybe you are looking for a Gamer PC? However that consists of building or buying a whole new system, because this mother board seems to pretty good. Actually the whole system is fine. It supports and has some of the latest hardware. Besides maybe the i7 CPU, and possibly a better video card, I don't see where an upgrade is warranted.
Here are the specs I found, so if you system differs please state so.http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2011/gateway/dx4850/DX4850sp5.shtml

SOURCE: Dell 5150 - Options for upgrade
Usually motherboards corresponds to the Dell Number. You can change your motherboard alone from a local technician. However, that's strongly not recommended.

Gateway hasn't had any recalls on it that I know of. maybe it is not the mother board. It might be the hard drive. Hard drives can do that aswell. When I fix a computer the first thing I check is the hard drive. A little bit of advice with computers. Start with the small things first and work Your way up to the big stuff. Hope that helps.

Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend. You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use. Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend. Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now. You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst. Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.
