Or you could give it to a charity. I know that many charities use donated PCs
to do their accounts, admin etc on. Try not to dump old PCs if possible
Your best bet is to pick up a used and working motherboard to replace the one you've got. You've almost certainly got a proprietary PSU though, so you may need to obtain a better one, especially if you intend to o/c. Even if you use software to o/c your hardware from your OS (with the board you've got), you may well have stability issues and depending on how well you o/c, you may need to upgrade your PSU anyway, as Dell tend to only provide what the existing hardware will need and not much more, with PSUs...
