You can install any 462-compatible AMD processors up to 3200+, and it supports up to 3GBytes in ram, you can install 3 modules of 1GBytes each, get an 'Nvidia Geforce 7950 GT AGP' card, these are not easy to find, but if you look in ebay you can find it, You'll have a fast enough computer to run some of the newest games and software.

In fact you can even run Windows 7.
Have a nice day

Hi.

The motherboard has an athlon xp socket, so you can upgrade your processor to an Athlon xp 2800+, that will give you a boost from 2.0 ghz to 2.250 ghz.

The motherboard can accept ddr333 type ram, to a max of 3 gb's of ram.

The ram increase will probably provide you with a better performance boost than the processor will, and it is most likely alot cheaper as well.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

    What dual core CPU is compatable with the dragon plus?


    hello sir, hi im afraid that the dragon plus has no AMD x2 (DUAL CORE) compatible CPU. if you want a dual core motherboard compatible, get the socket AM2 version for AMD or the LGA 775 for intel processor.

    P4X400 motherboard bad are there any replacement boards avalable?


    Any motherboard with the same FSB speed and a Socket 478 should do.

    Check out eBay:

    Unfortunately the Soyo P4X400 seems to have a FSB quite long in the tooth: from 100 to 133 MHz.

    You might be forced to upgrade the onboard RAM.
