    This is probably the best you can do.

    Not sure if it will support a brisbane core so you better stick with the windsor.

    this is the only info i could find on your mobo and it doesn't look like it can take a windsor

    and besides that processor is old you might as well go AM3 adn get more expandability.

    this is a good setup

    Foxconn mobo, very reliable
    AM2+/AM3, DDR2 memory


    you could go totally AM3, but then when you get DDR3 memory then it gets a bit expensive

    wha0t is your budget?
  4. There's the thing if I'm going to have to get a new mobo to
    get a decent CPU I might as well get a good one. I was looking at the
    Asus gene III. both crossfire and sli support as well as quad core. But I have
    no money for it and the ram and the CPU. So I was thinking might as well stick with
    this one and get an ok CPU for little to nothing.
  5. The thing is, you aren't going to see much change. That extra couple hundred MHz won't have any significant impact (really, much at all). You're better off waiting to get a new system.
  6. yea wait til u can change mobo too not worth throwing money into an outdated processor
  7. I really don't need a quad core just yet thou, but more then i have. what is the differance between Windser and brisbane? would this CPU work in my mobo (its like 55 bucks, and 3.1 ghz is almost 33% faster than what i have.)

    Thats interesting that you say it might not support Windser, because thats what HP made it with, acording to CPU-Z :)

    So how can i find out if it will support Brisbane? I did some googleing and found this guy who has the same mobo model, and his came with a brisbane... take a look http://www.pcguide.com/vb/showthread.php?t=68992 . what do you think?
  10. I still think the same thing: You're not going to see a noticeable performance increase by upgrading to that processor.
