You may also need a retail version of XP as the Dell machines use SLP(Sytem Locked Preinstallation) install cd's. If you buy another board but not from Dell, the Dell XP cd won't work as its tied to the motherboard Bios.

By the look of this motherboard it won't be coming from newegg This is a propriatory motherboard specifically for Dell that fits the Optiplex case. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx240/en/sm/sysbrd.htm#1100076

From the service tag # you provided, the replacement board is
Part# 3E078      PRINTED WIRING ASSY, PLANAR (MOTHERBOARD), GX240, OPPLX

If you do a search for "3E078" you will come up with the board.  
here's one from Ebay as Willcomp has suggested. http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Dell-OptiPlex-GX240-Motherboard-DP-N-3E078_W0QQitemZ290049913069QQihZ019QQcategoryZ1244QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item290049913069
