HT2000 motherboard specs

Specs: Windows 7
AMD Socket AM2 Motherboard, currently equipped with 2 GHz Sempron. Specs on Acer's support site say that the the T-180 can be equipped with an Athlon 64 x 2 but does not specify CPU speeds. Looking at prices for these parts, I see that prices for speeds 2.7 GHz and UP are LOWER than prices for 2.3 GHz and lower! How fast a processor can this product support?

You have to find out the make and model # of the board itself. Then go to their site and find the list of supported processors. For what you might pay for those, you would be better off with a newer machine.

Not so much, really - Further research showed the MB to be a Foxconn MCP61PM2MA. It can accept an Athalon 64X2 at up to 3.1 GHz, which smart shoppers can find for under $100.

But thanx anyway, grasshopper!

"It can accept an Athalon 64X2 at up to 3.1 GHz, which smart shoppers can find for under $100"

A smart shopper wouldn't have bought a T-180. Hopefully you have more than 256MB RAM as shown on the spec page? Being that it's an older system, you *should* have upgraded to 3GB (2 x 1GB + 2 x 512MB) DDR2-800, upgraded the power supply & added a decent PCIe video card by now.

Didn't buy it - my wife inherited it when the school she was managing went under. In fact, the school didn't even buy it, really, but that's a tale for (and from) another day ...

As you suggest one should, I've already upgraded pretty much everything else ... 450W Corsair Power Supply, EVGA NVidia 9500GT PCIe Video card, 4G of RAM (seems wasteful, I know, but 4x1G actually worked out cheaper than 2x1G + 2x512M ... go figya!), and a 2 TB Hard Disk. The plan is to use this box as a media-center PC - the display is a 42" HDTV.

Still, with all that nice peripheral stuff, it still hasn't got the horsepower to record a video stream. But a 3 GHz Dual-Core with 2M of Cache should improve that issue, I'll wager.
