I have a GA-71XE4 motherboard and the CPU is a 1GHZ AMD Athlon.I wish to upgrade the CPU but I am unsure of the fastest CPU I can buy for this particular Board.Please Help.

Try the motherboard manufacturers website.You should be able to download a manual for the motherboard from there which should give information as to speed of processors that it will take. Its always handy to have around anyway.

And it's the old Athlon same as yours, and it would not be worth the upgrade even if you could get a CPU
