  1. Hi mobo went out on other PC and am using an Acer as a backup right now. It has a FC51GM Mobo with an AMD Sempron 3200+ CPU. Are there any other beefed up socket 939 cpu that will work on this machine?

    Other Info.
    Acer Aspire T160
    NVidia Chipset C51 PCIe Bridge
    Bios Version Nvidia - 42302e31
    OS-XP Home 32bit

    It appears to be this Motherboard, Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS, which should run any S939 {including X2's}.

    Thanks for the info, was hoping it would handle x2's. Has a 3200+ Sempron right now that only runs @ 1GHz. Would really like 2 beef it up a little.

    If you hunt around, you could probably still get something like a 4200+ X2 brand new.
