I have an old AMD athlon 700. On shuttle's site it states that the board can
handle a 1GHz chip. The board has a 100Mhz FSB when i go to pricewatch to
preform a price check I see a 1GHz chip with a 200MHz FSB not 100MHz. I
found a CPU on for $149 its an AMD - Athlon 1GHz with 3DNow! (K7) 1000MHz
- OEM - 512k SlotA 512k. I just want to make sure that i buy the right chip
and install the fastest chip that i can. So I can extend the life of this
system. Thanks Justin
