1 Answer

Pc upgrade !

My pc has the following spec- ASUS Nforce2 A7N8X motherboard with AMD athlon XP 2400+ processor , 512mb ram and NVIDIA GeForce2 Integrated GPU (GeForce2 Integrated GPU) - NOT sure but does this mean that my graphis card is integrated with the motherboard?

My plan is to upgrade the processer ,Ram & graphics card .

The new processor will be -
AMD Athlon™ XP 3200+, 2.2 GHz (AXDA3200DKV4E) OEM which has Front Bus frequency =200MHZ and clock multipler = 11 BUT exsisting
OLD 2,4ghz chip has a front bus frequecency =133 mhz and clock multiplier = 15 will these differneces be automatically taken into account by the new chip and motherb or will i have to make some physical adjustments to either or the software?

Are there any stepping codes you know of that i should avoid?

The RAM i have NO problem with but the Graphics card if the old one is integrated how do i switch it off and when i place the new
one in which will use the AGP cons and will be DDR2 will their driver setup disc lock after it's instalation or will i need to do any thing else?

HELP!

Where you need to be is on Asus web site. Your board can handle ONLY; Athlon XP 3200+(400 MHz FSB)(Model 10)(Barton), AXDA3200BOX
With that CPU you must also have bios version 1004.
Check PCB and BIOS versions before flashing BIOS!
asus A7N8X supported CPU click here; http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A7N8X

Since you seem to need your manual. Click the link:
http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socka/nforce2/a7n8x/e1859_a7n8x.pdf

You do not have an intergrated video card. You have a 1.5v 8x
AGP video slot.
I suggest you call Asus & make sure your CPU model AXDA3200DKV4E will be supported over model AXDA3200BOX.
You can call Asus tech M-F EST at 812-282-2787.

Good luck & Have a great day!

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.


Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

The AMD xp1500 processor is slow. Its need to be faster than it is. Need to know. Cheers!


If your computer has less than 512MB of RAM, then that is one "bottle-neck" that hurts your computer's overall performance.
Consider adding 512MB or 1024MB of RAM.

Or, your motherboard probably will accept other AMD processors in the "Athlon XP" line. Take your computer to a computer-store, and see if they can sell you a '2600+' or '2800+' AMD CPU that will be compatible with your motherboard. That upgrade will make your CPU almost _twice_ its current speed.

HOW CAN I UPGRADE MY SYSTEM


it depends on how big the ram and the hd is. the bigger the hd and ram the more expensive it is except for their transfer rates. if your planning on upgrading because of games, you will need atleast 7200 rpm for the hardisk which costs more than a typical one. but for all i know thats the default for a desktop. there are 10,000 rpm also which are more expensive than the bigger hd's. same with the RAM. you can check ebay for the price. but the price depends on the country you are in if your buying it from your place.

Cost of game hardware in india


2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.

Memory +cpu upgrade


No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.

Processor upgrade


Need to look at the motherboard specs along with the processor "Socket". It will usually be a 754 or 939 depending on what your motherboard says. I wouldn't try too fast and set yourself up for disappointment. I would upgrade the RAM before the processor.
