    I am looking to upgrade my desktop that is showing it's age and was hoping to do it on the cheap, as I am not making much money these days.

    I currently have a the 3000+ and was looking to upgrade it the 3700+ as that is as far as I can go with this mobo. The problem is, I can't find this processor cheap:suprised:! Best I am finding is like $200 for it and I can get a new mobo and processor combo for that price in a 939 platform. I am just trying to make a cheap upgrade ($100 range) as I can't afford a full blow upgrade like I want to.

    Anyone have any suggestions on where I can look or is this whole line just a lost cause? If so, any recommendations for an upgrade?

    I just bought an AthlonII-240/2.8ghz from newwegg for $53. It's an OEM as I have HSF left over from a previous retail CPU. Anywho Have looked in newegg?

    With all due respect, Arnie, that is not at all what he had asked.

    Maveric, in my personal opinion, I would just hold off on spending money on that setup. I can speak from experience, it is definitely not worth the cost of the upgrade.

    For $200 on newegg.com, you can actually move up to a AM3 AMD CPU/ASUS Mobo/ 2 GIG DDR2 RAM setup.

    I would actually wait for that, instead of quick fix.

    I was trying to keep him under $100 and suggesting to look in newegg. However I would agree also to hold out for a bit more funds to do a better upgrade aswell.

    Thanks guys, that is what I figured also, was just hoping I could grab a uber-cheap cpu for like $50 or so, I didn't think the price would be so jacked up on such an old processor line. Ohh well, it will be worth the wait.
