Ideas For New CPU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've got a motherboard with a socket A (462) Mount in it and I want to know what the fastest processers you have ever seen in a socket A Format and where I can still buy 1 thanks.

er... i think i'd be right in saying that there is no store that still sells them, and you'd have a hard time finding a socket a processor on ebay second hand(and if you could i'm willing to bet it won't be cheap).

You'd be much better off spending just around $200 - $250 on new parts..Socket A is ancient now

Not knowing what MB you have it's difficult to suggest a CPU.
If the MB is a known good OCer, you could PM Xavier1421 because he has a great "Mobile" Barton that he may sell you, but the MB you have is the big question!!!
