The main thing is before you go swapping cpu there are some things to consider. 1. the new processor may draw more power than your current power supply can push out. 2. it will probably generate a lot more heat...both are bad..

But if you insist you can get away with an Athlon 64 X2 5600 or 6000+ cpu be careful though because some have different voltages which may not work with your board.

hope that helps.

Can I upgrade my 1Ghz processor to a faster 2 or 3Ghz? I have an EliteGroup 741GX-M, socket 462 desktop with an AMD sempron


yes, it is possible, but the Front side bus will limit the functionality so much that it wouldn't be worth it.

Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)

I have put a sempron 3.4 processor in but the system only recognises it as 2ghz ?


Your processor speed is actually correct AMD calculate the clock speeds differently from Pentium type processors, a 3400+ is a 2.0 GHZ processor, see the list below for speeds Sempron 2500+ 1.40 GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 2600+ 1.60 GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 2800+ 1.60 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3000+ 1.80GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 3100+ 1.80 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3300+ 2 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3400+ 2 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Don't worry too much about the proceesor not being recognised as long as you know it is running at the correct speed.
