  1. If this is in an HP board, it will handle up to 89W processors.

    The best CPU it supports is the Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 89W. It also supporst any AMD Athlon 64 & AMD Sempron processor with a speed rating below 4000+.
  2. thanks that's what i thought. I've decided to go with an AMD Athlon X2 2.9 Ghz little oder but all the power i need in this dino.

    my next question is what kind of powerr supply do i have i don't know where to look other than the proccessor it's a stock HP pavillion A4313w
  3. I don't think you'll really need to upgrade your PSU for a CPU upgrade - the HP Pavilion A4313w has a 250W PSU which would be adequate.
  4. my question isn't for my CPU, I need to know how much juice i have for a graphics card, and what would be a good one to put in that will keep me from switching the PSU?
  5. I wouldn't really use anything more power hungry than an HD 5670.
  6. can i get the 1GB version or will that be too demanding on the PSU
  7. If you're playing at 1680 x 1050 resolution or below then there's no real need for a 1 GB version, but if you do it should work, it's going pretty close though (the 512 MB & 1 GB version consume around the same amount of power.)

    If you want to play it safe you're better off with an HD 5570.
  8. that graphics card requires 300w i am pretty sure that i only have 250 but am not 100%. at this point i figure i better just go ahead and install the new power supply or i'll end up having to upgrade it anyway when the 512 becomes obsolete in a year or 2. damn blizzard and my love for starcraft
  9. It's recommended a 300 W PSU, but @ legitreviews their test computer (Core i7 975 @ stock) with an HD 5670 only used around 226 W load. You've most likely got a less hungry CPU, but then it's quite risky if your system say consumed 200 W.
