Hello all,

I am trying to find out if my old mobo an Asus A7V8X will handle a dual core 3.0ghz process. It currently has a AMD Athalon 1.8ghz. I am pretty sure all bios and such are set to what was loaded off the provided install CD.

I can assembly a PC with no issue but I am not savoy with most of the interworking such as BIOS and flashing the firmware.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Again because I am not very savoy with component compatibility would this be a good fit and nice upgrade to my current AmD Athelon 1.8ghz processor?

AMD Athlon 64 LE-1640 Lima 2.7GHz Socket AM2 45W Single-Core Processor

I searched New Egg and Tiger Direct as well as google and am haveing no luck as of yet located a process that matches any of the larger ones on the list. Would you have any retailers in mind that I might search for a compatible processor? I am trying to find one that is no smaller then 2.7ghz if available and prefer a 3.0.

I will keep searching.

Sorry men, but the supported processor are too old and is really dificult find one. The socket supported by the mobo was discontinued for AMD.
