Hi.

You do not say where you are from.

If in the US, go to, http://www.newegg.com/ or the 2 links at the bottom of this page.
Otherwise do a search on Google.

Socket A processors are unavailable any longer.
Your only real source now is going to be eBay, unfortunately.

Hi.

You will find a list here, http://www.amd.com/u...processors.aspx but I don't know if it will be helpful.

The only place I can find socket A for sale is here
http://shop.ebay.com...ksid=m270.l1313 .
