    no, i dont think so! the mother board bundle with brand pc are usually made for that model and brand,.

    if you get a new mobo even that same one i dont think the sony rec cd will work on it

    anyway since you are replacing the mobo why not get a new and more advance model????

    check with your local computer stores to see if they have or can get the same board as your old one so you can still use cd
