Hello. I have a very slow machine(1.67 GHZ, 1gb ram and geforce 4 ti 4200). I'm thinking of upgrading my CPU. Is an AMD Sempron 140 2.70 GHZ compatible with this mobo? (ASUS A7V8X or something like that) THe currenty processor is an XP Athlon.

does your board have a "FSB333" sticker on one of the chips? If so, the XP 3000+ is the best one I think.

EDIT:Checking if Speccy can do it

Bus Speed 133.3 MHz
Rated Bus Speed 266.7 MHz
Stock Bus Speed 133 MHz

No, you must open up the case and check both the revision number and the southbridge for the 333Mhz FSB sticker as is mentioned in the link I posted above.

On the motherboard, if you click on the links above to the Asus website, there's a picture of the motherboard, the sticker should be on the spot that says VIA in the picture. And the revision number will be printed next to the motherboard model or in the bottom left hand corner.
