pull it out of my MB and replace it with an athlon. KK as you have guessed im a bit clueless about what you can and cannot do with a computer.

But here are teh details on myold laptop its 4 years old and still goes well

hmmm cpu upgrades, acer and laptop ... sounds like a triangle of doom.

oh sorry i meant to say desktop

redcoat2, Dec 19, 7:17am
oh yeah and its a socket 754

Find out what socket this sempron uses, then it's straightforward from there.

$25 for a 3GHz processor.. man that's insane.

redcoat2, Dec 19, 7:42am
okay thanks for that
oh boy

Ah, none of the cpus in that link are 3ghz. If you are referring to the 3000+ cpus, from memory they only run at 1.8ghz

Either way, bloody cheap for a semi-decent cpu

There isn't anything wrong with the Sempron - its like an Athlon with a little less cache.

OP you are likely better off spending your money elsewhere - more RAM can give an immediate (and relatively cheap) speed boost

yeps i already have 2 Gb of 400DDR ram installed thats as much and as high as i can go

Consider upgrading the graphics card for better performance

I really think you've already gone as far as you can on a Socket 754 system.You can get faster processors for that socket but noting really worthwhile.
