    What CPUs will fit on my motherboard?

    I dont really know where to put this question, but I guess here is the place. I recently got a new computer, and I want to change the CPU on it, just so I can do more things in Windows. I want a quad core, but I am dubious any will fit on my motherboard. Right now, there is an AMD E1 1500 on it with a 'BGA413' socket. Would anyone know of any CPU's that would fit on my motherboard?

    It looks like you can run the C series, E series, E1 series and the E2 1000 series "which you are running now" of AMD processors.

    It will be very difficult and expensive to change the CPU on your motherboard. BGA stands for Ball grid array - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and specialised equipment is needed to install and remove these components from PCBs (they are surface-mounted, and not actually socketed).

    Actually the BGA-413 is the package. FT1 is the socket type. List of AMD Accelerated Processing Unit microprocessors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This sounds to be a pretty straightforward CPU replacement.
