I own a COMPAQ PRESARIO 5290 which I have been upgrading. I have upgraded the RAM from 128MB to the maximum 768MB. I have also upgraded the graphics card from a Nvidia GForce2 32MB to a 3D Blaster4 Ti4200 64MB.
I am keen on playing memory detailed games such as Microsoft Flight Simulator and for it to run perfectly, I really need a processor upgrade.
My current processor is a AMD Athlon 1000 1Ghz with 128 KB primary memory cache and 256 KB secondary memory cache. My motherboard is a Compaq 06E4H with a bus clock of 100 megahertz and BIOS 786K1 (whatever that means!).
Please - What processor would I need? How much would it cost? and what would I need to do to install it (apart from putting it in the computer?.
