Default motherboard advice

I am using an Acer computer. It has a Acer EM61SM/EM61PM motherboard.
What would be a good upgrade motherboard & processor?

You will have to upgrade your RAM as well, as a new board won't support your current RAM (since that board takes DDR2, and new boards take DDR3)

I would suggest swapping to an Intel CPU. Something like a Gigabyte GA-H87M-D3H, Core i3 4130, and 8GB RAM would be a healthy, but fairly affordable upgrade.
