I need some help! I'm considering upgrading my PIII 650MHz (Compaq Deskpro EN) but I don't know what chipset I've got. There's nothing in the Device manager that'll tell me anything. I read a recent article on THG about upgrading a PIII to 1.4GHz and it mentioned a company called PowerLeap. Does anybody have any experience with them?

When you factor in the price of a new p3 1.4 and the adaptor, it's probably just as cheap to get a new Athlon/mb/ram system. If you're limited in funds and want to stay with your current motherboard,then you could get the adaptor and a celeron 1.1 and overclock it to 1.4Ghz.
I'm pretty sure it is, I know Crashman has a bunch of them. If you PM him, you could probably buy one from him cheaply. You just plug it into the Slot1, and you get a socket 370, tualatin compatible (except with a 100Mhz bus unless you overclock)
Instead of Rdram, why not just merge 4 Sdram channels...
You don't need the Powerleap adapter, it's too expensive. Your board already has a Coppermine, so you know it supports low voltages. You can get an Upgradeware Slot-T adapter for $20. That's about $50 less than a Powerleap adapter, when you figure in the cost of processors.
