When it comes to changing processors in your pc, the very first thing you need to do is look in the motherboard manual to find out what types of processors are compatible with your motherboard.

The choice between AMD or Intel boils down to a personal preference. In years past, when AMD was just beginning to make processors, I would always choose an Intel processor because I was fairly certain I wouldn't have any problems with them. Today.... It doesn't really matter what processor is in my systems.

There are quite a few things that could be slowing down your pc.

1. You definitely need to increase the amount of RAM you have installed in your system. 256M is definitely not enough. How much more do you need?.... As much as you can afford. Again you need to check your motherboard manual to see what type of memory is compatible with your system.

2. Your hard drive is relatively small in comparison to current standards. How much free space is available on your hard drive, and when is the last time you defragmented the drive? Have you installed and then un-installed a lot of programs? How long has it been since your current operating system was last installed?

3. What type of video card is installed in your pc and how much memory does it have?

These are just some of the things that can cause your pc to run slowly.

Start with adding more memory then check your hard drive for free space and run a defrag.

As a rule of thumb... whenever I've used 50% of my total hard drive capacity, I start looking for a bigger one.
Either that or start cleaning things off of the drive.

I am seeing in most of the new computers, the AMD processor. Because I am shopping for a new computer I asked an employee at Best Buyif AMD is better than Intel, he said that AMD is four levels below...

For all out performance and raw speed, intel procesors are the way to go. Intel processors are fast, high quality and they have been around for a long time. On the other hand, AMD processors have descent processors for a good budget price, which may explain more pc's using AMD. Also, I have heard that AMD uses different materials than intel which make the less likely to overheat. For general, everyday computing an AMD processor should be fine.

Intel or AMD for a laptop?

When it comes to buying a new laptop one of the main things you should look for is a good processor.

Intel is a bit more expensive than AMD is but is more reliable.
Intel also has an auto shutdown feature in their processors when the chip overheats. This is a key feature when it comes to laptops because the main issue with laptops is overheating. Overheating is the main cause to parts going bad in laptops as well.

AMD is a good amount cheaper than Intel. AMD still makes very good processors but most of them lack the auto shutdown feature that Intel provides. This can be an issue when it comes to overheating.

AMD: Only go with AMD if you believe you can maintain a cool pc. If you have any doubt that you can do so then go with Intel.

Intel: If you can afford to make the investment in a cooler more reliable pc with an Intel chip then go for it. It's the better decision. But if you don't choose Intel then i recommend buying a chill mat with the computer to increase the life expectancy.

What processor speed can fit my motherboard GA-75748?

Motherboards designed for AMD processors have radical differences in design from those designed for Intel processors. The most obvious of those differences is the socket which accommodates the processor, which is totally different in both case.
This means that you cannot use an Intel processor on a motherboard designed for an AMD processor, & vice versa. You have to replace the motherboard with one designed for the Intel processor you plan to use.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors

I'd advise don't start thinking below E2180. As per the performance go, E2180 and AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ are almost same but E2180 runs cooler. If you are going to use dedicated graphics card, go for E2180 and if you want a CPU for Integrated Graphics go for AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ because most of the 780G/790X chip-based AMD-compatible boards offer superior IGP.
Best wishes...

To upgrade from pentium 3 to P4 you have to change alot of the hardware.

You need a NEW P4 Socket mPGA 475 Motherboard.

You can use the old CD rom and Hard drive and any other PCI card but You Need the Mentioned Hardware to Upgarde.
