Details of CPU support are available on the ASUS website here.

Max RAM appears to be 4GB.

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 New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. 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
