Hi I have an HP Pavilion a819n and it came with a Pentium 4 2.8Ghz I have since updated to a 3.2Ghz I wonder if this http://www.amazon.com/3-6GHz-Intel-660-800MHz-JM80547PG...

Can work with it.

To add another 400MHz

OR

What other types of processors can I buy?

I heard of someone getting a core 2 duo is this possible?

Intel shows the 660 as a compatible CPU for the 915GV chipset:

http://ark.intel.com/products/chipsets/5981 (Click Compatible Products to list ALL CPUs that can go on the 915GV)

HP shows compatibility also:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00...

And no, C2D is not supported at all. Some 775 boards could, the chipset limits it.

His computer specs show the Goldfish2 motherboard (in my link) not the Goldfish in yours. I know it is confusing they both show up as ASUS PTGD1-LA!

Leave it to HP! Either way, the 915 still supports most of the P4s and no C2Ds.

You'll have to find out if you have the Goldfish (915GV) or Goldfish2 (915G). The 915GV supports up to 3.8GHz, the 915G only 3.4GHz.

I just looked up the a819n and this is what came up on HP:

Apparently they made them with both boards so OP has to make sure which one he has!
