I'm going to try to sell my old Asus A7N8X-E motherboard with it's CPU. I want to properly represent what I'm trying to sell but I don't remember what my old CPU really is. I know it's AMD and I remember checking in My Computer the speed at which it ran [before I did my mobo/cpu upgrade] and it said 2.2 ghz. I don't know if its AMD XP, or AMD 64, or what. I have the old mobo with CPU intact but the fan blocks whatever information is printed on top of the CPU. How am I supposed to determine what kind of CPU I have?

You have two options: 1) Set up the computer again and check. 2) Remove the fan and check the print. The second option would be much easier.

Asus A7N8X-E is a socket A motherboard, so the CPU is probobly an AMD Athlon XP 2800+ (2.25GHz)

MG is correct on the first count and as likely as not correct on the second, but the better question is... why on earth are you selling it?

Go to "Control Panel" and open "System", it lists out my CPU and RAM.

I'm selling it because I'm running with new hardware now and these are old parts. How would I remove the CPU Fan w/o damaging the CPU?

Do you suppose it'd be okay just to list the speed the cpu was running at [2.2] and not actually say what kind of cpu it was [ie xp 2800, etc.]?

As Aristotle said, USE CPU-Z!!!

It's a little 2meg Exe file you download (Google's your friend) and run, no install required. It will give you the full loadout on what's running.

Here's a look:
