Hi all,
I can rebuild a 63 Chevy from the ground up but computers confuse my pea brain so here we go.
I would like to get the fastest processor possible for my machine.

I have AMD ATHLON 64 3500+ SOCKET AM2 940 ON A DELL OHY175 MOTHERBOARD, MEM DDR2 DUAL 2048 MBYTES. CAN I UPGRADE THE PROCESSOR WITH THIS MOTHERBOARD?

Use "cpuz" a free download, and see if it lists your board chipset. I can't find much info; you can also give us your dell system model number.

That's a tough call. Don't know if your board will run am3 up to 95 or 65 watts. I would post in one of the dell forums. You may be limited to am2+ cpus.
