I would suggest that you get a system that will give you years of good service and entertainment and functionality rather than getting a mediocre system then end up upgrading again after a year or two....
a quad core will give years of good service and functionality

I am using amd sempron LE-1100 i want to upgrade to a gaming pc so that i can play the sims3. so if i like to upgrade to amd athlon x2 how to know my socket type. please help


Your socket is AM2. You can put any AMD processor that has AM2. If the processor is AM3 just upgrade the bios of your motherboard and it should work. If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

Hi Paul,

Correct, you have to use the same type, but you can upgrade to a faster CPU.

According to the specs for your computer it can take the following:

AMD Sempron processor 2600+ to 3300+, 333MHz FSB
AMD Athlon processor 2800+ to 3200+, 400MHz FSB

See:

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT135/AspireT135sp2.shtml

The Athlon's are better...faster Bus. The Sempron is cheaper.

The 2 processors you describe are very similar. The difference between the 2 is that the first one is capable of running 64-bit operating systems and applications. The second one is strictly for 32-bit systems.

The next question will probably be, "What do I have?" Probably a 32-bit system. You can go with the 64-bit CPU and be safe as it can run both. You can see what your old one is by the revision number on the top of the CPU. You can use the following comparison chart to see the differences:

I hope this has been some help. Maybe it has just caused more questions. Just ask.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I need to run Autocad 2010 on my computer but it won't even instal because I have an AMD 3000+ 2Ghz processor. Is it possible to upgrade the processor without buying a whole new computer?


Autocad 2010 needs SSE2 to run.
The only Semprons which didn't have SSE2 are those for socket A, so I assume you're running a socket A mainboard. I checked and there are no socket A processors that support SSE2 unfortunately.

I think that you could replace your mainboard and the cpu cheaply witha a socket 754 mainboard (which supports SSE2 CPUs and should run with your old ram).

However I advise to upgrade to newer system with AM2 socket or so - they aren't expensive and the increase in performance in power-hungry applications such as AutoCad will be noticeable.

I need video drive


Sorry to inform you, but there is no such thing. The AMD sempron is a processor and not a video card... Do you know what type / model computer you have? Or what the video card type is?

Speed on internet


The faster speed is the slowest device on the network.
YES, YES, YES
yo need RAM upgrade. for what the CPU is running (1.8-2.00GZ).
Since I don't know what operating system you are running. upgrade the RAM to 2GB should definitely spped up your Internet Access.

Which is a better processor?


The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?

How to upgrade


Here is the list of compatible processors for your motherboard:

AMD Athlon 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950, 1.0G, 1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G, 1.33G, 1.4G (Thunderbird)
AMD Athlon MP 1.0G, 1.2G, 1500+, 1600+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon MP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon MP 2800+ (Barton)
AMD Athlon XP 1500+, 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon XP 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+, 2700+, 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon XP 2500+, 2600+, 2800+, 3000+, 3200+ (Barton)
AMD Athlon XP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+ (Thorton)
AMD Sempron 2200+, 2300+, 2400+, 2500+, 2600+, 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Sempron 2200+, 2400+, 2500+, 2600+, 2800+ (Thorton)
AMD Sempron 3000+ (Barton)
AMD Duron 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950 (Spitfire)
AMD Duron 1.0G, 1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G (Morgan)
AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.
