i was going to upgrade my faulty foxcon K7S41GX AMD sempron 1500 (2.200)
my other pc is a foxcon with amd athlon 3700+ which is very good and fast but a socket 939 the new board bundle would cost £90 thanks Chippy

If your a gamer chippy,the graphics could be a bit better.

I cannot see included ram,check your current ram is compatible with the mobo.

Apart from that,i think you should see a good improvement,especially if you have a clean install of windows.
