I have an Athlon 3400+ (yes, dated I know), and wondered of anyone knew if this was upgradeable?

I think it's skt 754, and am using Asus k8v se deluxe mobo - again dated.

Anyone know if it's possible?

Yes, if you are sticking with Xp, then your old kit should work on the new mobo. The Operating system won't. It will require different drivers, and will know you have changed the Motherboard.

Bill and co. will then require you to buy a new license. However XP is cheap as chips, but don't delay....Sales end @ the end of this month, after which time, prices will rise dramatically due to demand.

If you can, buy a copy now ready for when you build the new beast.
