I wonder if the upgrade in the recent article would also apply to my main board. I am refering to the article in wich they upgradet an PII to an PIII 800 or in my case I would want an 1ghz. The macine I am thinking to upgrade have ABIT 440LX\EX mainboard. I also have two machines with EDO ram, but I can't seem to find any cheap ram for them unfortunately. One of the board have the ABIT i440FX, and the other one has the Pd440FX.Is it however possible to convert a machine from EDO to SDRAM?

You're in luck. Refer to the recent thread entitled "PENTIUM CPU UPGRADE" on the CPU board. There, you'll find answers and comments to your question from this great community.

The motherboard that I referred to in my question is an Acer board based on the Intel 440EX chipset, which is an updated 440LX. In effect your board like mine is 440EX. I hope I got this right or I'm sure to hear about it! Have fun.

YOur stuck with a 66MHz stock bus speed on your LX motherboard, which can be overclocked, but not to 100MHz. Since it's an Abit you can probably put a Celeron 766 in it and overclock that to 943/82MHz or so.
Now what are these FX boards, socket 7? If they are, dual voltage boards can use the K6-2 (at up to 2.8v if necessary, with good cooling) using the 2x=6x feature of the processor to get 400MHz at 6x66.6. You will be limmited to EDO.

Back to you Tom...
