Default Need a faster CPU

Hi, I need a bit advice: I have an old computer, because of finances I have to do with this. I have a Asrock k7s8xe motherboard and a AMD 3800 CPU, can I put a fast CPU in this computer and will it help?

i dont think it is worth the money to upgrade the cpu.
you can get a 2,5 ghz version of that cpu, but i dont think you should bother with it.
your computer is just to old.
maybe more ram will be a better choice. how much ram du you have and witch OS are you using?
you can also try to lower the need of CPU power for your computer use. like instead of using internet explore use google chrome and dont have all kind of programs to be running in the background.

Hmm, something doesn't sit right with me here. AMD didn't make a CPU of that speed for that socket. Are you sure that's the correct board, OP?
