Like Ranco58 is saying, they don't make upgrade chips for that anymore.

Time for K8 upgrade and new motherboard, yeah!!! There are budget PCs that are around $400 from Dell and Compaq/HP. Or you can buy components piece by piece at www.newegg.com until your computer is finished.

Reuse your monitor, keyboard, and mouse to save money.

Yeah; the K-6 Motherboard is probably more useless than the Processor itself... which is pretty useless.

You can get some great Celeron D PCs at Dell and Gateway for very low prices.
