Question about Gigabyte GA-7ZMM Motherboard

1 Answer

Processor upgrade Could you please tell me what the best performing processor would be if I wanted to upgrade my creaky old computer. I currently have 1 x 256Mb and 2 x 128 Mb memory installed and will upgrade to 2 x 512Mb (looking to buy thru ebay from the US as it seems cheap but is this wise?) As this is just our family computer and we have laptops for speed I just want to get the best I can out of it Regards Neil Smith Crewe, Cheshire, England

    Thanks Mike

    Would you know if there will be a very noticeable / a big performance improvement with the processor you suggested over an AMD 1hz processor coupled with the 1Gb Ram? or would I be better off replacing the motherboard and getting newer memory and CPU?

Most, if not all memory Mfg's carry a lifetime warranty. Buy from ebay only if seller has original receipt. You're memory must run at 3.3volts. The board will not support any other voltage. For this reason only you're memory is a bit pricey.

This is the max CPU you're board can handel.

The Duron Socket A Processor 200 MHz FSB is hard to find.

As you will notice. All the links I have posted are from pricewatch. They have the least expensive prices I found.
Bleow is the link to your're Gigabyte GA-7ZMM board.

Hello i ave hp compac dc7600 and i want upgrade for a best processor


Hey this PC is pretty old.

What is the current chipset in it?

I have checked the specs of the Pc and it looks like this the best processor you can put int it

Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache,
800 MHz FSB)

Not too bad but a little behind what is currently available with the i5 - i7 models.

Check what your full model number is and region then head to this page:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML#Configurable%20Components%20-%20Select%20Models%20%28localized%20by%20Regions%29

It will show you what can and cannot be put int the system.

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.


Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Gigabyte/7VM333M-RZ.html
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

Hello. i have a hp pavilion5700 its quite old now for todays need so i was wondering if i could upgrade its video card, processor and ram my current processor is intel pentium 4 and ram is 512 i...


Video card is out of the question - it's specific to the motherboard, can't be replaced with anything else; the processor can be replaced , but only with one from the same generation - the speed gain will be minimal, not worth the effort.
The only thing that can be upgraded is the RAM : get 2 sticks of 1GB - you will see a sensible improvement.

I have laptop lenovo N500 model 4233-65G. currently it have core2duo T6400. i want to upgrade processor. please tell me suitable options. i had heard that most of the laptops dont support this replacement.


The processor you have is already pretty zippy, so why worry about changing it? It usually doesn't pay to upgrade a processor anyway. The laptop was designed to use the processor in it, and trying to use something else may lead to power problems, overheating and shorter battery life.

If you are trying to improve your laptop's performance, you would be better off adding extra RAM to the capacity of the computer. Make sure Windows is free of unnecessary startup applications, and scan your computer for viruses or other malware. Also check for updated drivers for computer. Often there are later versions that may help.

Thanks for using Fixya!

What is the best processor upgrade for Quanta 30CB 79.29 mobo???


Look for a processor that is much faster than your current processor.. i think you look for an Inter Core2Quad... that will boost up your computer's performance

Kindly tell me currently which laptop gives better performance. ?


The internet speed depends on your internet connection along side with your downloading speed, and the processor is fast enough for casual play but not extreme gaming or streaming, although you can upgrade the processor. Buy a pre-built computer and get basic cheap parts, if you want a extreme computer, you will need to special order it or rebuild it yourself with top of the line after market modules.

I want to know about different cpu processor.how they are working and evolution of cpu processor


PROCESSOR IS BASICALLY KNOWN FOR ITS BEST PERFORMANCE AND SPEED. CURRENTLY AMD PROCESSORS ARE KNOWN FOR ITS BEST PERFORANCE AT LOWEST RATES. BUT IF YOU NEED A BETTER PERFORMANCE YOU SHOULD GO TO INTEL PROCESSORS. COZ TODAY INTEL PROCESSORS ARE THE WORLDS FASTEST PROCESSORS. THE ONLY LIMITATONS FOR THIS PROCESSORS IS ITS PRICE.

BUT IF YOU NEED TO PLAY GAMES AND WANT TO WORK IN MULTI TASKING YOU I ADVICE U TO SHIFT INTO INTEL PROCESSOR.

YOU CAN COMPARE THE BOTH PROCESSORS. JUST GO TO GOOGLE.COM AND TYPE COMPARE PROCESSORS IN SEARCH. THE RESULTS WILL SHOWS YOU THE SAME THING AS I SAID.

NICE DAY.
