You can upgrade the mobo and processor .but now a days we have ddr2 ram. mostly u dont have that so if u want to upgrade u need to buy the ram also.better u can go for new computer itself. with latest config.

If you built or had built a computer and you were very carful which mother board you bought, you could match you video card and Ram to the new motherboard. It is very likely your Ram is slower that most use now days, and your video card is unlikely to be the PCIe16 also used on modern boards. Sorry.

As posted by Smithbrother, you can't just put any motherboard in a Dell--the case and motherboard are built for each other. You would be better off buying another computer. A new motherboard means a different processor (like you want). This means a different, higher speed memory.
You can have a system built by a local computer person or browse some of the sites (you can go to Dell for some real deals--as well as other company sites).
Any new system will not have "only pci slots." The new boards will have PCI-E slots for your video, but will also have some PCI slots for expansion.
Cost? That's hard to say. I have to do an estimate for each of my clients depending on just what they want.
