I have scored a spare PC and would like to set this thing up for my son.
Now this thing has got a DFI INfinity NF4 SLI mobo supporting socket 939 athlon64 CPU. The CPU installed is a Athlon64 3800+ (I assume this is single core). Checked on the DFI website - and it says that this that it supports dual core. But I am not sure about these things.
1.Is there any way of planting a dual core CPU in this mobo?
2. DO you get socket 939 dual core CPU's still? Secondhand maybe?
3. How difficult is it to replace this CPU? (I am not into building PC's).
4. Where can I get a dual core CPU?
Please advise as it will save me some money cos the lightie is pestering me for his own PC for a while now.
PS. The unit is kinda old but here is info I managed to ascertain:
PSU is Antec 500W
Western Digital HDD 250GB
Some old xfx GFX card (might be a 6600)
Thanks in advance.
