Help Upgrading Processor

\015 I have a Compaq Presario s6000z, Win XP Pro, 80 gig hard drive, 2 gig ram, AMD Athlon XP 2400+, 1.99 ghz, I need to run my 3D Studio Max 2010 software for school, but I need to upgrade my motherboard and/or processor to Pentium 4 or AMD Opteron 64. Can I just switch out my current motherboard(A7V8X-LA -I think) and processor?, where can I find compatibility for my Computer?, will any new motherboard fit? Any help is appreciated, Thanks\015

Answers :

You'll find the information you seek at both the processor company and the motherboard company. As for remounting it in a Compaq case you may run into some issues of the On/Off Switch, power lead, reset button ect...matching up. You might be suprised at how inexpensive a new computer case is. I've seen some as low as $25. Your power supply can be removed and it will fit in your new case. You may just have a easier go of it. Good luck...please leave a rating, thank you kindly
