Dude, that things older than a year. And I highly doubt you're going to find much better than that for Socket 754. A quick newegg search only shows Semprons as available....which totally suck (less cache). I'd recommend your friend to stick with that CPU until he can afford to go new CPU, mobo, and RAM. You can get an X2 3600 Brisbane, Biostar TForce550, and 2GB G skill DDR2800 for less than $250. If he's got the cache, I'd recommend him go with that. But he'll need a PCI-e graphics card or PCI. If he's already got a PCI card....great, if not, expect to buy a graphics card too.

tell your friend to not put any more money into this computer. it isn't worth. Socket 754 was 2 generations ago. it was replaced by Socket 939, which was replaced by AM2. it's dead. let it die.

He doesn't HAVE to replace the whole PC. I was just stating that its cheaper just to buy a new mobo, processor and RAM...rather than sink more money into dead technology. Hell, my fiance still runs a Socket 754 3200+...and it still runs pretty decently. The biggest thing your friend would notice is:

Dual Core CPU
More RAM (at least 2GB)
Better GPU (Nvidia 8600GT or better)

If he could get a rig going with those things, he'd have one hell of a rig. Hell, mine's a 2.0GHz Dual Core, 1GB RAM, and 7600GT...and it does everything I could want it to. But what I listed seems to be a pretty decent standard to go by today. Like I said though, he doesn't HAVE to replace everything, or anything at all. Nobody's holding a knife to his throat....but if he wants a faster computer, he's got to replace some parts. Since its so old, he'll need to replace the mobo, CPU, and RAM at least.

Just my 2 cents.

Forgot to add: The only way to tell a safe OC is to try it out and stress test it. If its stable for 12+ hours, then its safe (just so long as temps are below 60*C).

i don't see why not, but i'm very ignorant when it comes to AMD stuff. i wouldn't expect huge gains from it though. if you list his motherboard make and model, one of the AMD geeks will probably give you an intelligent answer.
