No Donnie, the motherboard for the Compaq Presario SR1050NX won't support an AMD Athlon 64 processor.

The reason why is;
A) The Processor socket on the SR1050NX's motherboard is a Socket A. (Also known as Socket 462)

Hp Support > Compaq Presario SR1050NX > Specifications > Motherboard Specifications >

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
Look to the right of the CPU heading:
Socket A (Processor socket)

This is the Socket A processor socket used on your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A

You can click on the photo of the Socket A processor socket, to the upper Right, to enlarge.

The AMD Athlon 64 line of processors came out after the Socket A, and used the Socket 939 first.
Then on to the Socket AM2.
(Socket 940 for some models)

    Sorry! Joe Coolvette, I have a Compaq SR1610NX System? Am I correct in that this processor will work in this system...

    Ah, the SR1610NX with an MSI ms-7184 mobo, and a Socket 939!

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docum...

    Yes, because ONE, as stated from HP Support it will support AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors up to the 4800+ model.
    (Up to a 2000 MegaTransfers per Second, also. {2000 MT/s}

    MT/s is used because it describes the transfer rate more actual, than stating MHz, {MegaHertz}, or GHz {GigaHertz}, in Frequency Rate.
    Mega = Approximately 1 Million
    Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
    Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

    Example: The AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ processor {Brisbane Core}, is capable of achieving a 2.5GHz frequency rate.
    2 and a half Billion cycles per second)

    TWO, because the Northbridge chip is an ATI RS482

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_...

    You also have to make sure, it is an Athlon 64 X2 processor that uses a Socket 939 processor socket.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_939

    Do you know about Anti-Static Precautions when working on a computer?
    A Processor is the MOST susceptible hardware component to Static shock.
    Do you know how to properly apply Thermal Paste?
    (Also referred to as Thermal Grease. DO NOT use a Thermal Pad. They're Junk! Don't use Thermal Glue)

    Should also add that the Socket 754, and Socket 940 was used first, and not the Socket 939 as I erroneously stated above, for Athlon 64 processors.

Well i have a compaq presario sr1603wm and basically i was going to buy a new computer but thats like 600 bucks so i was wondering... what kinds of graphics cards/ram/processors/power supplies can i use to...


you can use these processors:


AMD Athlon 64 (3000+ - 4000+)
AMD Athlon 64 FX (51 - 60)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 (3600+ - 4800+)
Some AMD Opteron 1xx series
Some Sempron 3x00+ (Step E3,

any standard wopeer supply will do, and you will need a more powerfyul power supply for a mre powerful graphics card.

you can get any pci-e card. an nvidia 9800gt used to be the 2nd best graphics, but its now the minimum card for gaming. I wqould reccomend a 9800, or at least an nvidia gtx260. the higher the numper, per series, and the 4xx and 5xx series are btter than the 2xx. be sure to check the graphics card for reccomended power supply rating.


for the ram, you need pc3200 DDR ram(DDR-400) or higher DDR ram, not compatible with ddr2 or ddr3.

Compaq presario sr1750nx Athlon 64 3500+ 2.20GHz Processor


Hi zcaldwell1;

You have the option of upgrading your processor without buying a new system. I wouldn't purchase the other system, If you looking to upgrade look at the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6400+, that will step you up to 3.2GHz, which is compatible with your motherboard. You can get more information on it HERE. And for more information on your motherboard you can find that HERE.

The only thing you want to make sure off is that you have enough power to handle this processor. If you have a 450 or up power supply you'll be fine.

Good Luck

Mark
