Which processor should I buy to replace my old one

  Lenoire 17:50 11 Aug 2005

Recently my PC wouldn't boot so I replced the processor and now it is working again. I have only borrowed the processor though and need to buy a permanent replacement. Does anyone have any ideas how essential it is to get exactly the same type? Its an AMD athlon 2200+ processor.

Like Fruit Bat /\0/\ said it is important to know what your motherboard will support.

Obviously it will support an AMD 2200, but in the way of things slightly faster processors are more likely to be available at a low price.

It is NOT essential to buy an exact replacement unless your mobo was stretching itself to support the 2200, and cannot take anything faster.

Whatever you choose, it won't make a huge difference in performance, its just a matter of knowing the limit and selecting the best bargain speed/price.
