No, sorry, Semprons are socket 754.

Have a look at these Socket A processors click here. Your motherboard may not detect a Sempron by name, although a BIOS update might help, but should work with ir anyway.

It will depend on whether your motherboard will take the higher speed processor. What motherboard is it?

  Smiler 11:32 27 Jan 2006

Meaning a higher speed socket A processor of course :-)

As the others have said, if your motherboard does not support the processor you would be wasting your money buying it. We need to know the model of your motherboard.
