That board is AM2 so you are probably looking at a 5050e processor which is a good speed bump over your sempron.

Most of the other AM2 processors are now unavailable.

Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat APAC a Technology Evangelist and Product Manager. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

you could bump up the ram and change the cpu but the cost of that you could start to build a new system

gigabyte are doing some very good boards at good price's but what do you want a high end gaming rig or

a internet surfing machine or has your current setup got a virus and slowed down as a result
