You're going to need to be more specific. Google brings up multiple results for K9N4 motherboards. Also, what kind of RAM.

Are you looking to only upgrade the CPU, or the MB and CPU?

Any of these will do,up to you how much you want to spend and how fast you want it.


Though personally i'd go for the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ 2.8GHz - For $49.99 Free Shipping,you cant go wrong!

I'd go for an Athlon X2.

Athlon X2 5600+ (2.8Ghz) 2MB Cache or the Athlon X2 6000+ (3.0Ghz) 2MB Cache.

Both use Windsor cores. Ensure you get the 2MB cache, as above.

Well, it'll be the same socket so the stock one he has should fit...

Would wanna get some good thermal paste though, if that's the case, since he'll need to replace it.
