    It can support Socket 939 Athlon 64 X2s, that are slower than current Athlon II x2s and cost 2-3 times as much. It's not worth upgrading that computer.

    You're looking at about $225~300 to upgrade to a modern system. Old PSUs are not compatible with newer boards.

    $50 PSU (Basic 400watt)
    $50 2GB RAM
    $60 AMD X2 CPU (modern)
    $65 AMD 760 mobo

    Now if your budget is limited, what you can do is check ebay, criagslist or locals online and see if someone will sell an X2 CPU (939) for cheap. I have 1 or 2 dusty X2 CPUs... so perhaps a tech in your area may have one to sell for $5~10.

    BTW? Whats really cool is taking an AMD X2 550 CPU ($85) and turning it into an X4... I've benchmarked one and its faster than my intel quad.... :(
