Solved Compatible processor recommendations for my motherboard?

July 8, 2012 at 00:16:45
Specs: Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 64-bit, 1.6 GHz / 1024MB DDR-400 RAM
Hello everyone,

I am looking for a good processor that is compatible with my board to replace my current processor.

My exact hardware specifications are as follows:

Mainboard: ASUS K8S-MX Rev. 1.xx
Processor (Currently): AMD Sempron 2600+ 1.60GHz
RAM: 1024MB DDR-400
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 6200

I am looking for a processor that will give me a bit more power, but I would prefer for it to not be ridiculously priced. Also, if anybody knows a good site, I wouldn't mind a bit of extra DDR-400 RAM to replace the ones currently in my system. 2GB or 4GB should suffice if possible.

If you need any additional information on my system, or an exact price range for the processor or RAM, do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks everyone,

Comguy

Upgrade you graphics card, if it is still slow then upgrade your CPU.

Asus website is the place to go for answers, only supports 2GB Mem:

Ebay is the place to seek out very obsolete hardware...........

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Your system is poorly configured - bad SiS based board, lowest of the low end Semprons, minimal RAM, weak graphics. Running XP 64-bit on that system makes no sense at all, in fact, running XP 64-bit never made much sense, regardless of the system specs. Here's some sites that still sell S754 CPUs:

Sis can be short for sissy, random idea in my head.

Just do basic stuff and it will be fine, probably has a 'el-cheapo' low power power supply anyway.

Thank you for your replies everyone,

@jay_nar2012; I am, and intend on continuing using this PC for low-end video gaming and standard web browsing, etc.

I apologize to everyone, as I meant to say the system is running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 32-bit. I intend to use this system for low-end video gaming and web browsing until I acquire the funds to build a high-end, modern gaming PC. Regarding the power supply, I have a brand new PSU I purchased from Newegg for a customer build, but never ended up using. I will likely replace the current PSU with the new PSU.

I will take a look at the links and references that everyone has mentioned so far, and will post if I find one I decide to purchase.

Thank you,

Comguy
