I was wondering if anybody could tell me what kind of motherboard would be able to swap out with this one as you can see from the pictures the Capacitors I believe that's what they are called they are bulging and the computer will no longer turn on.

If anybody can help please and thank you
From what I remember it's dual core intel processor with ddr2 ram I don't know what kind was my brothers computer.
I know no newer parts I'm talking like something from ebay or something It's for my mom so she has a computer to use.

Is it this one?

It's easier to find the motherboard from the computer's model number. http://support.dell.com

If you have good electronics soldering skills (different from soldering skills for plumbing or sheet metal) you can install new Nichicon HN (M) capacitors and end up with a better motherboard for much less than you can buy. http://www.badcaps.net sells those capacitors and offers repair advice.

Supposedly my brother said it's a custom built computer so I do not know what all they did to it its a very old computer and no I'm never soldered before.
I don't think that one is it cause that one looks like it has really tall capacitors around the lower left area

When I get a chance to go over there again I'm gonna strip everything off of the mobo and take more pictures.
