Okay, I am a novice (just enough knowledge to be dangerous, I guess) who cannot afford a new pc right now. Games are not rendering well on my older Athlon (1.2 Ghz) system. Looked at video cards, but have been told a newer cards won't do much good if the processor is the bottleneck. SO, I thought I might upgrade the processor. Don't know if a new one will be compatible with my motherboard. I have a Compaq Preserio with a Quik-Silver motherboard that noone seems to know anything about.

Can anyone tell me how I would figure out if I can upgrade to a newer faster better AMD processor?

Quik-Silver Motherboard aka Compaq k7 motherboard. I don't know what is the CPU series but if the mobo has the Socket A aka Socket 462, supports SDRAM 133PC or DDR RAM 266Mhz 2100PC and an CPU frequency of 266Mhz (refer to user's guide for details) you may be able to upgrade up to Athlon 2400+XP (there's also one 2600+ XP @266Mhz FSB). As i said i don't know the CPU series neither the mobo's chipset so, this info maybe innacurate...
