Windows 7: Compaq Presario SR1000 motherboard upgrade

Compaq Presario SR1000 motherboard upgrade

Hey guys, been a while since I last posted here.
Alright so recently I got myself a Compaq Presario SR1000 which I stumbled across in my local market after buying some new gear for work, the PC is fully refurbished and was W-XP and now W-7 after a complete format of the hard drive and sticking Windows 7 on.
Also got myself a decent enough graphics card for the PC games I currently own.

Okay now so, eh...The computer itself is very old and the hardware within it before I had installed the new graphics card which is a Radeon HD 6670 is say more than five years old at least, I'm wanting to turn this computer into a new gaming PC and so I'm looking for a new motherboard.

I'm not sure at the moment of what type motherboard it is, but I'm thinking its a MATX (Mid-ATX) board.
I'm wondering though if anyone knows of any other motherboard that would fit the Presario SR1000?

If you want to upgrade, along with a new motherboard, you will need new memory, CPU, CPU cooler and power supply at a minimum. Basically you are building a brand new computer. As cases are relatively inexpensive I would also go with a better case that has more cooling as it will be needed for a "gaming" system. Factory PC cases are not usually designed with the cooling needed for a gaming PC. Also consider Compaq Presario computers (and cases) are the "low end" or "inexpensive" line from HP.
