I was going thru some old computers I have and got one going that has a 64X2 AMD Athlon 4800+ processor with a rx887aa -aba. I have a 2005 AMD Athlon 64X2 6000 in a computer with a bad lanparty MB. What would be suggestions on which processor to use for how much power it takes to run and what performance I will get either way.
Also, anyone know what the best case for the dollar I could get to build a cheap good system. I would like enough room to put any Graphics card in I would like for future upgrades. I have an older EVGA 8800GTX but it measures at about 10.5" Long.
Looks like that board is an HP model -_-. You might be able to use the 6000+ in it, but you have to check with HP to see if there is a BIOS update for that or something. It's possible that the board won't support it due to the extra power draw. Even if you have the third 6000+ model, The Brisbane @ 3.1Ghz, that board may not have a BIOS update to support Brisbane CPUs. HP wants you to buy a new computer rather than upgrading yours after all .
