Change the plate? ¿Cambio la placa?

Asked by Lightday on 2017-10-02

Hi, good to see who can help me. I have the following desktop computer:
- 500 GB hard drive
- Motherboard Asus M2N ATX AMD AM2
- Micro Amd Athlon 64 X2 6000 (3000 Mhz) 2Mb dual core
- Graphics card Nvidia GF 210 1Gb DDR3 64 bits
- Memory Kingston 4 Gb DDR2 800 Mhz
- Power supply 350 w
According to the plate I have, the maximum processor it supports is 6400 (3200 Mhz).
I use Ubuntu from version 10.04 and until 14.04 with this pc I supported it, but for a few months I have observed that I think it lacks a processor (version 16.04 I had to uninstall because it was hard to start and stop). Is it time to change the board, because if you change the micro in a short time and will not support future versions of Ubuntu?
Thank you.

Hola, buenas a ver quién me puede ayudar. Tengo el siguiente ordenador de sobremesa:
- Disco duro 500 Gb
- Placa base Asus M2N ATX AMD AM2
- Micro Amd Athlon 64 X2 6000 (3000 Mhz) 2Mb doble núcleo
- Tarjeta gráfica Nvidia GF 210 1Gb DDR3 64 bits
- Memoria Kingston 4 Gb DDR2 800 Mhz
- Fuente de alimentación 350 w
Según la placa que tengo, el procesador máximo que soporta es 6400 (3200 Mhz).
Utilizo Ubuntu desde la versión 10.04 y hasta la 14.04 con este pc lo soportaba bién, pero desde hace unos meses he observado que pienso que le falta procesador ( la versión 16.04 la tuve que desistalar ya que le costaba mucho arrancar y parar). ¿Es hora ya de cambiar la placa, ya que si le cambio el micro en poco tiempo ya no soportará las futuras versiones de Ubuntu?

You can change the motherboard and ubuntu will boot. The hardware is detected each boot. This isn't Windows where if you change too much hardware the OS does not boot.

Is this what you mean?

A 3Ghz processor is plenty for Ubuntu. I run it on much less with no problems at all. Just remember to use the 64bit ISO to fully use your CPU.

In the end I changed the plate, the micro and the memory and goes to perfection.
