Need replacement mobo for gt5220 motherboard.

I have a gateway gt5220. I have an AMD Processor. What is a good replacement motherboard for this unit? Do I have to use an OEM replacement mobo?

I suggest getting the same exact motherboard inside the computer. Although that computer has a BTX Form Factor, the board will be expensive, around $120+

When a customer with a gateway that has a BTX FF and its bad, i tell them to get a new computer because its not worth it after labor and a new board when you could get a better PC.

Should say... Find the serial number on the board and do a google search to find the exact motherboard.

from a bit of googling it may well be this one...

but check the specs to confirm.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

if it is socket AM2 as in the above link then check any of these. Sorry it's a UK site, but you can search your local supplier using the numbers on this site.

running through the gateway support pages on their website it looks like that's definitely the motherboard.
here is their recommended supplier of a replacement, but you def. don't have to go OEM

Might end up cheaper and spare parts a'plenty.

ECS boards generally fail over capacitor issues.
If it wasn't static'ed, mishandled, or power surged it can probably be rebuilt.
