CPU upgrade

  Throbber 09:40 29 May 2005

Where can I find out how fast a CPU my PC can support? I have a Jetway 8363-686A board, and currently an 800 megahertz AMD duron processor, which I would like to upgrade.
Or would I be better upgrading board and CPU at the same time?

Getting a new motherboard and CPU would be the best move, I think.

Take a look at the motherboard bundles that Novatech have for some guidelines re. price.

if you decide to upgrade cpu and mobo, you will also need new memory as well.

This I think is the CPU list for your motherboard click here but in order to know which processor it can take you would need to know the version of the motherboard you have (it sometimes tells you printed on the motherboard) and you would need to flash the BIOS. If you flash the BIOS and something went wrong while you're doing it you would end up not been able to use the motherboard, it would be dead. The other thing is if you replace the processor you would probably need new memory which is another expense. Because of all this I'd go with Diodorus Siculus's suggestion and recommend a motherboard bundle from Novatech click here because at least you would know that it would all work together properly.
