Hello, the unknowing one again. I am still upgrading bit by bit my older PC. The mobo is a Gigabyte 7IXE4, about 3 or so years old. I added in a new video card and now I'm looking at the processor. Gigabyte says the max processor is either an AMD Athlon 1.4G FSB 200 or an AMD Duron 1.3G FSB 200 http://www.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Support/CPUSupportList/CPUSupportList_GA-7IXE4.htm I know that Athlons are supposed to be better performing that the Durons. However, the only Athlon 1.4G I found was on pricewatch and was $140+ Local stores have the 1.3G Duron but dont carry the Athlon. anyways.. .probably gonna go with the 1.3G Duron. My question is: how difficult is it to change a processor? I was told that its as simple as pop old chip out, put new chip in, but I'm always very weary when someone says its simple. Any input / guides you can recommend? Thanks again!
