I have a Compaq Presario SR5013WM Desktop PC and I need a mobo.

I have a Compaq Presario SR5013WM Desktop PC. I need a new mobo. My current mobo is a P5LP-LE (Leonite). This mobo is old and I feel it bogs down the overall performance of the PC. I need suggestions for a compatible new one.

  1. It isn't your motherboard that is limiting your performance. That motherboard supports 1066MHz ram and has a PCI-E x16 slot. Your processor however is an extremely old Pentium 4 with only 1 core. Unless you have upgraded it already. In that case, motherboards still don't limit performance. You probably have lacking RAM or graphics card. According to HP that computer comes with 512MB of ram and integrated graphics. That is what is slowing your computer down.

    In the case that you have upgraded all those parts, and you still feel a new motherboard is necessary, I'd recommend a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128536.
  2. Okay. Thanks! I have upgraded my processor to a Pentium D 3.2 Ghz dualcore processor. Do you have any recommendations for a better processor?

    What are you looking to do with your computer? Games, media, office? The pentium D is pretty outdated too. If a new computer is completely out of the question, I would first recommend

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134193 and somewhere along the 6570 graphics card line.


    But to be honest, that computer is extremely outdated and getting a new one for ~$400 would yield far better performance.

    I'm looking to use it as a personal computer. Some media, Some web surfing, and Some gaming.

    What games are you talking about? Probably the best you can do with that processor ( plus the ram and graphics card) is source games. A RAM plus GPU upgrade will probably cost you ~$120, and even more if you decided to get an e6600 off ebay), and you will still be getting eh performance. It would be fine for movies/office if you got 4 gigs of ram and a radeon 6570, though. It all comes down to how much you're willing to spend and what your goals are for performance.

    I'm looking to use for a game like Diablo 2/Warcraft. Older versions. My OS is dualboot Windows xp/vista. I have kept them both because I have not decided which is best to use. I'm fairly new to the computer world as I am only 15 so please bear with me if you find me lacking knowledge.

    If you only have less than $200 to spend, this is what I'd recommend.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102988

    Should be able to play those dated games.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371003

    Don't want to be putting any stress on a crap OEM power supply. (Surprised it hasn't blown with that 130W cpu.. maybe you've already upgraded it?)


    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134192

    Get 2 of these.

    And find a Core 2 Duo E6600 on eBay.

    If you have more than that to spend, there are plenty of people here (including me) that can build you a much more futureproof computer for $500.

    And also, don't worry. I'm only 14, lol. I know this is a lot of parts to take in, but if you were comfortable with installing a new motherboard you should be fine with this.
