I am just getting into the whole computer scene and I figured I would start out playing around with my current PC to further my knowledge.

Here is a link to the current PC I have: http://www.walmart.com/ip/5086351
Here is a link to the motherboard: http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4ECS410M

Its not a bad computer I just don't really use it for what it was intended. Mostly it gets used to surf the web, but I'm hoping to start doing a little gaming.

I have done a little looking and I came up with an Intel i3 540+H55 motherboard combo from newegg. I just dont know much about the configurations and whether it will be a plug and play deal. I am also going to upgrade the graphics card, etc. Any input would be appreciated!

It has a 300watt power supply.

Unfortunately, you'd be better off starting from scratch. And if your budget is really tight, you might consider an AMD system.
