Actually there are Pin less processors .which fit in the motherboards . Pin less processors don't have pins . we can fit in motherboard easily. But, the processors which have pins . takes a bit concentration .because the pins can bend.
All Amd Processors are with pin . and all new Intel Processors are Pin less
You need to make sure you have a processor of at least 700mhz. Two 256MB modules no problem. Many times you can buy a used laptop on ebay (either 9300 or Compaq armada e500) with the two 256MB modules included a lot cheaper than just buying 2 new 256MB modules. The Compaq Armada and 9300 modules interchangeable. Either way, you can still buy 2- 256MB modules(PC100/133 SDRAM 144PIN LOW DENSITY) for under $40.00 shipped. Very easy to install. I suppose if you have a P4 processor you could even go larger. I use Linux, which is 3-4 times faster than windows anyways, with no viruses etc. I have two 9300 laptops running like so with no problems whatsoever. Extremely fast(with ubuntu), too! If you haven't tried Ubuntu operating system you haven't lived. I'm no computer geek and find it so simple and fast. Free downloads on internet or buy a Live CD on ebay for a buck to try out without having to install.
Games and graphics place a huge demand on the RAM (memory) and processor. It is for this reason that gamers buy expensive video cards with huge amounts of RAM inbuilt into the card (The cards are almost computers in their own right).
Your processor has to deal with a lot of information when you watch dvds or play games .. it works damn hard ... hence the heat .
Your best option is to fit an additional cooling fan (computer shops have them in stock). Try removing the side of the computer casing to allow more air to circulate. Die-hard gaming enthusiasts add all sorts of extras to their computers .. water tubes to circulate water .... that sort of thing.
Your processor will become hot .. that happens in all computers. It's EXCESS heat you want to avoid. As a general rule of thumb, a processor's ideal temperature is 40 degrees C, though they do go beyond this temperature at times, without adverse effect.
Rather than replace the circuit board, you might consider going on Ebay and just buy a used replacement base. I got one a few months ago on Ebay at a fraction of the cost of buying a new food processor. Cuisinart parts are popular on Ebay.
OK, Your motherboard has a 'PCI Express* x16 bus add-in card connector'. It should be the closest connector to your processor. You can buy a card from ebay quite cheaply. A card like this would be suitable ->EBay UK Auction<- You will find like cards on EBay US if you.re stateside.
