Check this Intel page for compatible motherboards and chipsets. If you get another board, you cannot use the Dell disks to install the OS. You will need a new copy of Vista or Win 7.

It looks like the Gateway board supports DDR2 800 RAM. Is it a standard micro-ATX format? Do you need 2 or 4 RAM slots? Does the power supply have the 24-pin power connector?

Maybe something like this: MSI G41M4-F LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX
