Re: CPU upgrade question
Well with your type of CPU, if you want speed, you will have to completely change mobo. Cause the one you have possibly has a 100 Mhz bus, PC100 RAM and a 16X multiplier.
Also I doubt very much that you would find a dealer that sells a CPU that would work with your chipset. If you would, you wouldn't be very much faster.
You might as well sell your PC and buy a new one. Not necessarily the fastest on the market but for ~ $600 Can you can have a PIV 3.0 Gig 512 PC3200 80 Gig hard drive, and a radeon 8x with 128 Meg: and you keep the same monitor.
