Which processor

I am thinking of going for a new mainboard bundle, but which processor would give me the same if not better results than the one I have which is an AMD Athlon XP 2500 1.8ghz.

Failing that I currently have a socket A mainboard if I replace that with a new socket A will all the memory chips etc fit??

Don't buy a new socket a mainboard. It is basically obsolete

If you need to buy a new mobo go for 939 pin with PCI express graphics card slot. But you'll need to go quite expensive to make much difference in performance above your Barton 2500 cpu

Thanks for the advice, appreciated.

I have a MSI Mobo with Athlon 64 3000 but not PCI express as I had recently bought a new AGP graphics card. I am very pleased with its performance although PCI express would be better if funds are available.
