Hello,

What I've got:

Dell e521 w/ AMD Athlon" 64 X2 dual-core processor
Win XP Home SP3

Is it possible to upgrade my processor to something faster? Or is this the max for this Dell?

About all you would be able to upgrade to is the 5400+ and it wouldn't be noticeable at all and not worth the $64(in my opinion).
