Ah, lol. Heres what I'm getting:

Processor: http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...20socket%20370

Ram: http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...puter%20memory

I think this setup should work
Think the total comes to around $73 after shipping and tax. Which is about how much just that first, non-working processor would have cost me .

Good luck as you really didn't need any advice after all .
But this minor upgrade is a waste of time even if it works.

I've been wanting to upgrade my computer for a while now, and recently decided to look up a processor. I found a cheap one, but then came to the realization that I had no clue how to install it or if it is even compatable with my computer. My brother, who I figured could help, has installed a RAM chip into his computer, but has never put in a processor before. Since he is away at college, I would have to wait a month before he could come here to install, and I'm hoping to install a little earlier.

My computer: A gateway, currently installed with a PIII. I don't know the processing speed, but I'm guessing it's just slightly below 600MHz (a game requiring 600MHz runs pretty slow on my computer, and I meet all the other system requirements).

The processor I want to install: AMD Thoroughbred-B Athlon XP 2600+. Heres the sight (has specs under the 'read more' link) http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...arch=processor
(if you can find a better deal, please let me know. I'm poor =P)

So the first question is, will this be compatable with my computer?
If it is, how do I install it? (Money is an issue for me right now, so I'm hesitant about going some place to get it installed)

Also, someone offered to buy me a video card and/or some ram. I've picked out these:
Video Card: http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...on%209200%20SE

Ram:
http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...puter%20memory

I'm not too familiar with vedeo cards or ram upgrades, so if anyone could give their advice on these, that'd be great.

Thanks for your time.
Well once again,will your mbd accept this wonderfull buy ?
I doubt it,please be sure.
