so im confused about something and im hoping someone here can help me.
im wanting to upgrade processors but i have questions first.
i am wanting to upgrade:
board: acer s82ma
processor 1.7ghz socket 478
im wanting to get something that is obviously a little faster can anyone make suggestions?
can i put in any socket 478 cpu?
does it have to be a p4 or can it be, example celeron or celeron d etc
thats all i can think of for now, if you need more information please ask me so we can get me goin faster
any help is much appreciated
thanks in advance
btw i found these on a local craigslist listing will any of these work for me? which would be best?
what would be the absolute fastest cpu i can get for my system?
Part / Model: S-82MA
Description: New S82ma Acer S-82ma P4 478 System Board
thats all the information i can find on my board?
ive upgraded to a measly 1gig ram and a nvidia 6200 128mb video card other then that its all the same as it was new, runs vista ultimate with aero really well but always near like 75% cpu usage and im sure thats not good
thanks again for the help
also.... my current processor (came with the board) is:
Intel Pentium 4
1.7 ghz / 256 / 400 / 1.75v
and socket mPGA 478B
hope this helps for some information
