Hi i have the emachine t6420 with nvidia 410 motherboard. everything i can find about the motherboard says it supports am2 slot processors including amd athlon x2's, so i bought one and the pins do not match up. is there something i'm missing here? maybe all those websites are lying about it being able to support am2. the processor i bought is the amd athlon x2 4800+.

Last year both my sons bought an eMachine, EL1300, desktop PC. I am looking at upgrading the processor, the Motherboards are both WMCP61M's. I was wondering if I could replace the existing AMD Athlon...


I would suggest you not to go for a processor upgrade, if you want to play games. You should consider upgrading your graphics Card(GPU). The processor that you mentioned above is enough for playing High-end games when combined with a good graphics Card. Upgrading your processor will boost very little game performance. But when you will upgrade your graphics Card. You will notice great boost in game performance and more new games will be supported. Two major manufacturer of Graphics Card are NVIDIA and ATi. You can opt any one of them. Nvidia GPUs are considered as a Good Performer. But also ATi is known for its long lasting life. Both the manufacturers produces a long list of models. Opt for the one that suits your Budget and the performance.
Hope this will help for sure.....

I have a mobo C51PVGM-GB that I would like to upgrade the video card and not use the one built into the Mobo.


You are upgrading the graphics.
Instead of using Integrated Graphics, you will be using a dedicated graphics card.

Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered to the motherboard.

It is not a video (Graphics) card.

A dedicated graphics adapter card has it's own GPU, and graphics ram memory.

Information on the Gateway 4006136R - Nvidia GeForce 6150 AM2 uBTX 1394 motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006136R/4006136Rnv.shtml

Viewing this small photo of the motherboard, the Orange long slot you see is a PCI Express x16 slot.

1) The Northbridge chip is a C51PVG
2) The Southbridge chip is an MCP51

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

3) Made by ECS
4) Has an AM2 processor socket on the motherboard, for AMD processors.

Upgrade cpu for amd athlon4050e processor


  • Any AMD processor for AM2 socket that has a higher rating will do. Best one is http://www.mwave.com.au/newAU/mwaveAU/productdetail.asp?SKU=19040125
All it takes is a powerfull enough motherboard with a matching BIOS.
Or you could buy this combo

Processor upgrade


Need to look at the motherboard specs along with the processor "Socket". It will usually be a 754 or 939 depending on what your motherboard says. I wouldn't try too fast and set yourself up for disappointment. I would upgrade the RAM before the processor.
