* Zion 2Gb DDR2 Ram [need to change]
* 500.01 GB SATA Seagate HDD
* Ati Radeon 4350HD 1GB Graphics card
* Samsung SATA DVD RW Optical Drive

Now, as I'm upgrading my motherboard, processor & ram only so I need a motherboard that is fully compatible with my present hard drive & graphics card...!!

Well, i also have three choices:

* Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2H Motherboard
* ASUS P8H61-M PLUS V2 Motherboard
* ASROCK H61-M-HVGS Motherboard

Just take whichever you want. They're all basically the same. Bear in mind that those motherboards do not allow overclocking nor crossfire/sli so if you are considering any of those in the future it may be better to buy a motherboard using either the P67 or the Z68 chipset.
You may also want to upgrade the GPU

The thing with brands is that there are usually good and bad opinions. Personally I prefer ASUS or Gigabyte and avoid ASRock and Biostar however there are many people who don't like Gigabyte and both ASRock and Biostar are recommended many times.
If you have a brand preference go with it. If not just take the cheapest
