it's only got 2 ram slots also, i have looked on hp site and i dont think it supports dual core amd cpus, so i guess the max is the 64 4000

You can run an fx on this but you need to upgrade the BIOS...not the most user friendly thing to do, but if you visit the HP website:ttp://welcome.hp.com/country/uk/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers you should find what you need.

Be careful when doing this, and always make a bacup floppy in case things go wrong.... a trashed BIOs chip means Bye Bye motherboard.
