Hi, I'm sorry I know that this question is asked a lot, but I am wondering what kind of new processor I am able to put into my system?
I have a Compaq Presario SR1403WM that I bought at Wal-Mart back in September 2005.
Compaq Presario SR1403WM Desktop PC - Product Specifications from HP.com
More info on my computer with a different processor listed in it from Compaq.com
The motherboard is a K8S-LA (Salmon) with a Socket 754 processor type. The BIOs version on it right now is 3.10 but theres an update to 3.15 listed on the second link. I currently have 768megs of DDR PC2300 ram. I plan on upgrading that to OCZ Platinum 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
. I am currently using an ATI Radeon 9550 256MB Graphic Card
and plan on upgrading to SAPPHIRE Radeon X1650 512MB Graphic Card
So any suggestion on what type of processor I can upgrade to would be very appreciated! Other questions, if the fastest processor that I can put into my system is a 64 bit one will that work just fine with my 32 bit Windows XP? or If I get a 64 bit version of Windows XP will the applications that don't have a 64 bit version run fine in the 32 bit version on the 64 bit XP?
This is all the information that I know right now that should be helpful in the suggesting me a new CPU. If you need any other information just tell me what and I should be able to find it.

Thank you in advance for helping me and I'm sorry for asking a question thats been asked a million times. Hopefully I made your helping easier with the information that I gave.
EDIT: I think I have narrowed it down to two type of processors that I can put in it. The AMD Athlon 64 3400+ (ADA3400AXBOX)
and the AMD Sempron 3400+ (SDA3400BXBOX)
. Should either of theses processors work for my computer??
