Looking on the Compaq/HP site and my motherboard's info ( http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00257657&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=nz&lang=en&product=460242 ) it says maximum approved processor:
- Socket 754
- Supports the following processors:
- AMD Athlon 64 3700+ processor (Clawhammer, 2.4 GHz)
- AMD Athlon 64 3400+ processor (Newcastle, 2.4 GHz)
- AMD Sempron
Reading around, I find these processors are pretty much out of production.
My question is, should I upgrade it, and where could I find one, or is it worth it upgrading the motherboard to a newer one that supports socket 939?
