I had a AMD Athlon™ Processor 64bit and a nice mother board, I know nothing, All I know it was FAST, I got it fixed and the guy said this is faster, I can't open more than 3 windows or I crash. and it's a 32 bit now, the new motherbaord System Model ZX-SIS760GX-MN can you tell me what this board is worth, I know I got ripped off, when I called the guy to ask questions he hung up?? I was nice, I bought it from Kawartha Computers Clinic In Lindsay Ontario Canada and If I got screwed I wana have him in court, and put a end to him doing this not only to me but othe people as well.

Unfortunately you cannot upgrade the processor with a new one, the socket 754 is obsolete, retired 4 years ago. You might find some second hand Athlons that will fit it (fastest is 3700+) on auction sites.
That board uses AGP 8x video interface so the best one for it would be something like http://bit.ly/aX9Jrv
It sounds to me like the processor that you bought is not fully supported in the current bios in your mobo. I would check the epox website for newer bios. Be careful flashing the bios, if you misstep in the flash, you may end up with a brick. If you are successful, you should be able to run the processor at the speeds you expected, though within the limits of the hardware on the mobo. Also look at the spec's for the mobo on the site to see if your processor is listed as being supported.
Yes it does matter which processor, per motherboard. This board is compatible with AMD cpu's (Central Processing Units). I recommend getting a Athlon XP 3200+ processor, although you can get faster or slower AMD processors based on how much money you want to fork out. This motherboard uses a VIA KT600 chipset, for your information.
Your motherboard accepts Socket AM2 for AMD Athlon™ 64FX / 64X2 / 64 and Sempron processors
The board has safe overclocking - so unless you know what you're doing I would stay away from changing any settings manually or you could fry the mobo.
How much memory do you have - more memory can increase speed. Faster HDD
If you want you could go for the Athlon 64,
The Sempron only goes to 2.31 so there wouldn't be much difference in speed.
There is no fix for that. You need a board that is the same as the original because that is the size of the processor. If that is a socket 462 processor, it is only designed and will only run in a motherboard with socket 462 on it. You need to either replace the processor or replace the board with the correct one.
