Default My PC

I currently have a computer with the following specs:

I would like to know if it's poosible to upgrade it to an AMD 64 processor?

If so, what would the minimum to maximum cost roughly be?

No, that is going to be some old *** socket, maybe socket A. The older A64 socket is 754 and the newer is 939, neither of wich I believe yours is.

Time for a full rebuild.....

You would need another motherboard to accomadate the new CPU. Also, that new motherboard will take DDR and not SDRAM so you will need new memory. You would be better off saving and doing a full upgrade from scratch.

its also a compaq (look at the BIOS), so u can scratch upgrades. i think they use proprietary hardware

-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro

yah, as others have said, it makes more sense to just buy a whole new pc, since you cna use almost nothing form your current pc in a new fully-updated one.
