It is possible to get a new cpu but you would need to get a new motherboard if you want a pentium or athlon processor. I would suggest building a new PC if you really want proformance.

Celeron processors are really just used for surfing the internet and checking your e-mail etc not playing recent games or doing anything to graphical.

It's not only your budget (IMO) that you should consider - but also where you want to be in a couple of years with your system.

System obsolescence is a fact of life these days. If you want to ensure good performance with new software then you'll have to invest more. Yesterday I was talking with a guy who wanted to upgrade his RAM and video card. But he was so near the point (expense wise) that it was actually cheaper to buy a new system than to fix and upgrade the old one.

hi usasma,
i was thinking of buying a new system with a better processor but i just bought this computer like a year ago and about 2 months ago i upgrade my memory ram on this computer and i also had to buy a dvd drive for it caues it came with out one thats why i think the best thing is to just upgrade the processor on this computer and also the video card isant to good so i think it would be a good idea to upgrade that to but i dont know what would be the best processor out there or video card to go with any advice on one i was thinking of the core 2 duo processor i need something fast for gameing and to be able to run multiple programs at once with out slowing down

Just looked up the SR1010 at hp.com

here is a link to the motherboard layout: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...mp;lang=en#N852


your board is capable of handling up to a P4, (Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors) up to 2.8 GHZ

up to two gig of ram, but no AGP or PCIE video cards

the power supply is only rated for 250w I would recommend a new computer.

Just to upgrade this one, you would have to replace the power supply, motherboard, processor and ram, and purchase a good video card, and the windows that came withe the compaq cannot be re installed from the recovery partition when you change to a different Motherboard.

hi oldf@rt,
so if i would get a Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors 1.4GHZ to 2.8GHz which you were telling me that my motherboard is capable of handling i would only need to get me the processors and not the mortherboard to right or would i still need to get me a new motherboard to

you would just have to get the processor, but your machine still could not handle a new video card.

you could upgrade to a 2.8 ghz p4 at the most, which in my opinion, would not be a great increase over the 2.7 ghz celeron.

in the earlier comment to upgrade to a Core series processor you would practically replace the whole computer.

Yeah if your planning on upgrading a 2.7 Ghz celeron processor you should definetly get core 2 duo or you won't notice much of a difference. To get core 2 duo though you would need a new motherboard, and I think most of those use DDR2 so you would have to buy all new ram, so pretty much you should just buy/build a new computer if you want to upgrade your processor.

In short, anything you do to upgrade this particular system won't be real noticeable.

But building a new system is expensive. Take a look at this link for some ideas: http://arstechnica.com/guides/buyer/system-guide-200608.ars
