Hi, this MoBo has a 1.80 GHz AMD athlon 64 3000+ processor...can I upgrade the processor to a higher level (GHz)? Thank You
 
Here's an affordable upgrade: http://www.starmicroinc.net/product/ADA3400DAA4BY/-AMD-Athlon-64-3400-Venice-22GHz-512KB-L2-Cache-Socket-939-Processor---OEM-ADA3400DAA4BY/. You won't do much better. The high end stuff is way overpriced. It's the 939 boards that are almost extinct, so don't invest too much in your old board.

o1die....I thank You for the help and the http:/ link. You are correct 939 boards are old ...but for some reason my board is very fast...I had 4 gb of memory, but the system shows that I can only use 3.256 gb.....so I removed 1gb and replaced it with 256 mb... went back to the system and it shows that I have 1.256 gb of memory. this is strange because on line I read that the max for this MoBo is only 2.00GB. Anyhow
my computer boots up very fast...between 4 and 5 seconds....so I'am a happy camper.
I run windows 7....32 bits, 2- 160 g's hard drives and a 80 g's third hard drive as a slave to my multiple DVD writter rom.

I thank you for the help. :bounce: but $28.00 is a bit to high.
 
Windows 7 32 bits only shows about 3.25 (with 4 gb installed) on my system, so your reading was normal. It's a limitation of windows 7 32 or any 32 bit operating system. But it's not worth it to upgrade to 64 bit windows; it has problems with adobe flash player when using explorer 9.0, so I switch to chrome for my web browser.
