Need help with CPU upgrade for Gateway DX4300-03
I am not tech savvy and need time to order parts for my first DIY computer. In the meantime I would like to restore functionality and move this computer downstairs for use as a netflix/htpc downstairs.
What is the best cpu I can install on this machine? I am unaware of all the problems that could be associated with upgrading the processor. I would like a drop in solution to maximize what I've got and not spend money which would be better used for an upcoming build.
*EDIT* I wouldn't mind a higher clock speed dual/triple core cpu.
