Default Upgrading a processor

Hello there everyone.

To begin with, here is a bit of information on my motherboard:

Motherboard Model MS8308E
Motherboard Vendor Elitegroup (ECS)
Motherboard Serial Number 00000000
Chipset Model SiS730 CPU to PCI Bridge
Chipset Vendor Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS)
BIOS Model AMIBIOS 062710
BIOS Vendor American Megatrends Inc.
BIOS Id 62-0913-001131-00101111-071595-SiS730S-MS8308E
BIOS Date 07/15/95, MS8308E Series Release 09/13/2002 S

I am hoping to upgrade my processor, but am unsure wether or not it is able to take a 64bit processor. Any help would be greatly appriecated and more information about my system is available upon request.

Looks like you got a socket A motherboard. You will need to upgrade your motherboard to get the new chip. Now that you have completed that you need to upgrade your RAM from SDRAM to DDR. Since thats complete, now you have to reload windows.
