ok - one moment - this says Windsor cpu's of 89W can run 3800 - 6000+ processors, so it looks like i can upgrade?
yea! it's a Windsor 3800 - so i can up to a 6000 - if there are any around still in town? emoticon.Surprise.title
excellent - thanks! R
"... it's a Windsor 3800 - so i can up to a 6000 - if there are any around still in town?"
never a truer word ...
looked at about 20 retailers and all list 'Out of Stock'
but at least i know there is a potential upgrade - and i am not ready to up the cpu yet anyway - but could be cool, even if i have to look for a second hand 6000+ ?
That processor could be hard to find, try eBay.
Newegg has AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Brisbane 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor - OEM [ETA 7.6.2009], but there are strings attached to it's purchased.
yes, it will be a difficult one - is it that production has ceased yet there is still a massive demand?
why do they do this?! i have been in this boat before 😐
what i did notice was that all the 6000+ Windsor cpu's i saw were 125W instead of 89W - is this significant please?
