Was wondering if someone could help. I have a Comp with a broken board, it says where the chip is that it is a Matsonic 8137c Socket 462. It has an AMD Athlon 2400+ chip in it running at 2GHz.
There are multiple problems with the board that I cant be bothered fixing! I have looked for a board that holds a socket 462 but from what I can see Socket 462 and socket A are the same!!! can anyone confirm that if I buy a socket A board will the chip will fit??
and if so what is a decent socket A board?
- Will my AMD athlon 2400+ that is currently in a Socket 462 board fit in a socket A board?
- What is a decent Socket A board with SATA and firewire for under 50 quid?(there are so many!)
Thanks if anyone can answer any of these questions then I would be eternally gratefull!
