An AMD will not work in a socket 8. the only thing you can do is put the powerleap converter or evergreen makes one also.I think socket 8 only had 60 & 66 FSB so only the celeron will work in the converter. I saw an evergreen with 500MHz celeron for $219. This is a bad upgrade path. You would do better by geting a Duron, Motherboard and memory for about the same cost maybe less.
Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Socket 8 motherboards are ONLY useful with Pentium Pros and 1st generation PII's (with converter.) Don't bother trying to get anything else to run in them, because they won't. Just get a new mobo+cpu.
