  1. Years ago my grandparents had a Gateway 610 XL Media Center PC and I loved it the design and purpose and I would like to buy one like it off eBay and update it. But I've looked into it and it is bit of an issue with the original motherboard because it will only take up to a 3.0 GHz Pentium 4 HT and up to 2 GB of RAM. But the issue with replacing the motherboard is the formfactor and the fact the motherboard has no connectors on it the Input/Output is on a daughter card plus the speakers are internal. These computers used the Samsung Motherboards 4001035, 4001039, and 4001041. I love these computer but for one to be my main machine I need C2D and up to 4 GB Ram. I know these have faulted power supplies so I might need to replace that too. So is there any hope of me doing this with out it looking like heck.
