Upgrading processor



Hello! Thank you for reading :slight_smile:

I want to upgrade my processor amd 64 3000+ with any of amd athlon 64 x2 _ _ _ _ series or with opteron 170.

1.) Is this possible?
2.) Would amd athlon be better than opteron? I use stock cooling.

  1. Yes, but it would be a waste of money unless you get it for free and since this appears to be an OEM board you’ll probably have spotty CPU support.
  2. Doesn’t matter at all
