According to HP's specs found here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume... your motherboard is micro-ATX form factor. I will highly advise against attempting to use a full ATX board in that chassis.
I might suggest the ASRock G41C-GS but I am unaware of any socket 775 CPU/mobo combo that will run ram natively at 1600MHz - the ram should work but will likely max out at 1333 unless overclocked.
Hope it helps

What activities are you looking to improve? That may help decide which direction to take for an upgrade

overall speed pereformance and to have more ram, as i have just realised that my motherboard only supports upto 4gb if im correct, and as i have 8gb theres 4 useless gb's. i would like it to not be green if possible as i have a white mars cit case that is part see through. i was hoping to have a nicer looking pc rather than the bog standard boring green.
thanks

One more thing to consider here is that a change of motherboard will require a new operating system since your Windows license through HP is for that 'system' with motherboard intact. Virually everything within a computer can be changed out without worrying about a new OS license, the motherboard is the exception. I think the ASRock board should work unless there are specific features you are looking for that are not there. Here is a list of your options as presented by Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-ali...

swapping a motherboard isnt worth it, getting a new mb/cpu/ram is.
