But 2 issues may be a problem. Where to get such a CPU and new heatsink (the old will not be usable due to added heat) and if your machine will like the new CPU.
It won't give the machine much of a pop so I'd not do this.
Is it possible to upgrade my 1.10 GHZ AMD CPU? I am running Office XP Professional with 512MB of RAM. I purchased the computer in 2001 and it still runs great. I just want to keep up with the current technology.
