Default please help

One of my buddies told me that i cannot upgrade my gateway with a new motherboard or anything because they have a odd processor or something. I know gateway has weird power supplies but i found one for it.

I have a Gateway 506GR Desktop Computer



Thanks

Gateways don't have odd processors. I don't know what your friend is talking about. Your computer has a P4 3.2GHz right? Thats not odd.

It will fit as long as you get the same socket motherboard.
