Also dont get a processor with a higher FSB than your board supports. Acer website gives no indication of board specifications but does say that the T180 supports the following processors AMD Sempron™, AMD Athlon™ 64 and AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor with NVIDIA® nForce® chipset. If you are running XP you need minimum 512mb RAM and Vista minimum of 1GB RAM.

Follow this link, download and run the program the cpu and cpu id will tell you the front side bus speed, the pin configuration (AM2)
Multiplier etc.

The mother board tab will id the board and chip sets to check manufacturer of the board and see what processor support there is.

Judging by your specs its upgradeable to an athlon 64- 4000 2.6 ghz.

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.

Hi i need more help in knowing just what type of processor chip to buy i know i need to put the same type back in my problem is i dont know what type it is my pc is acer aspire t135 1.8ghz it says on my...


Hi Paul,

Correct, you have to use the same type, but you can upgrade to a faster CPU.

According to the specs for your computer it can take the following:

AMD Sempron processor 2600+ to 3300+, 333MHz FSB
AMD Athlon processor 2800+ to 3200+, 400MHz FSB

See:

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT135/AspireT135sp2.shtml

The Athlon's are better...faster Bus. The Sempron is cheaper.

The 2 processors you describe are very similar. The difference between the 2 is that the first one is capable of running 64-bit operating systems and applications. The second one is strictly for 32-bit systems.

The next question will probably be, "What do I have?" Probably a 32-bit system. You can go with the 64-bit CPU and be safe as it can run both. You can see what your old one is by the revision number on the top of the CPU. You can use the following comparison chart to see the differences:

I hope this has been some help. Maybe it has just caused more questions. Just ask.

Thanks for using Fixya.

please purchase the processor that is compatible to your motherboard. if the motherboard can be upgrade to a higher speed of processor then purchase it. if not, stick to the required specs. if you still want to upgrade, replace the motherboard, processor and the memory.

1 Ok now that i found the spec for your computer here we go you can install the amd 64 x2 but not Phenom x4 9950

2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend.
3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer.
hope this help please vote for me.
