Can i fit a bigger processor to my ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard and mybe more ram and if so where can i purchase it from

This motherboard supports a AMD Athlon 64 / Sempron processor (Socket 754). Since this is an older unit you will have to search on Ebay for a processor.
As for the RAM you will need DDR 400, this can easily be purchased at There is a maximum of 2 gb on your motherboard.

How much hard disk GB support in p4bp-mx

Hi araamudhan12,
Its your choice. The motherboard will function with either size hard disk drives. The 160BG drive will store more information than you might think. So the question you'll need to ask your self is, do you really think you'll come close to filling up a 500GB hard disk drive. Most users install two drives. One as the primary & the second as an extra storage drive & to back up the primary drives data in case the primary has a problem. When looking for a hard disk drive, go with the drive or drives with the longest warranty.
When installing a new drive & the new drive will be your primary drive. Disconnect the 40GB drive. Allow windows to format the drive & install windows from scratch. Once windows is installed & completely updated you can re-connect the 40GB drive & copy all your personal data back to the new hard disk drive. When your sure all the data from the 40GB drive has been copied over. Install another 160GB drive as your back up drive / storage drive. Keep the 40GB drive just in case you missed data that you though you did not need. The Asus P4BP-MX motherboard can run, two Ultra DMA 100MHz hard disk drives.

Have more question, post here.
Good luck!

Planning to buy a hard disk

look on the board... if it has sata connectors .... use them as they seem to have a better data rate. i'm uncertain if you can still buy new 80 gb drives now... but your sources might be different then mine.

Memory support confusion

Hello gu11ddu,
Here are the specifications concerning your question about your motherboard's RAM.

Memory Type grayquestion.gif DDR SDRAM Number of Memory Slots 4 x 184 Pin DIMMs Supported RAM speeds 400 MHz • 333 MHz Max Supported RAM grayquestion.gif 4 GB
The key factors that are the most important when you select your ram is the MEMORY TYPE DDR SDRAM, 184 PIN DIMMs, and the SUPPORTED RAM SPEEDS 400 MHz and 333MHz. Your motherboard will support memory no more than 4 GB of memory, so yes you could use the 128mb modules, but you must make certain that they are DDR SDRAM types and 184 Pin DIMMs as this is what the manufacturer suggests is compatiable with your specific motherboard. The supported speed is also a suggestion, because this is the max speed that will work at it's optimal level. You can buy some ram modules that are higher, but they will clock down to the max speed allowed by your system. In other words, say for example you went to your local best buy or circuit city and bought the suggested memory type with the proper pin count and DIMM modules but they only had 500 MHz bus speed, then your system would clock the speed down to 400 MHz. With 4 128mb modules you are only going to get 512 mb max memory, because 4 x 128 mb = 512 mb so you will not be using all the available memory capacity that your motherboard can handle. If you wanted to maximize your memory usage you could buy 4 of the 1 GB memory modules or buy 2 of the 2 GB modules to obtain your max capacity. In your case buying 4 128 mb memory modules would not be worth it because you could buy 1 of the 2 GB modules and get better memory usage.
Another important thing to remember is that you should always use the same type of memory modules and never mix and match them with different ones as this could cause system crashes and problems with lots of memory errors. When going to a local store and asking a sales rep for compatible ram they will ask you what is the make and model of your computer and what your processor speed is because your processor speed also determines your bus speed because your ram will not operate above that speed it will simply clock down (if it is rated higher than what your processor speed is), with this information they will look up any compatible ram they may have in stock. Hope this answers your question and if you need further assistance please let me know.

p.s. your motherboard can support up to a pentium 4 class processor, but this may be different than what you have in your system.

If you do not mind, please rate my help as I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
