Upgrade Help Tags: CPUs Last response: April 13, 2001 4:14 PM in CPUs Share Anonymous a b à CPUs April 13, 2001 2:22:26 PM I need to upgrade the processor of my machine, I know it's a huge bottleneck for my system. Here are my specs: Abit VT6X4 Celeron 500 Annihilator Pro (Geforce 256 32 DDR) 384 Megs PC-133 What do you guys think about just going to a PIII 800+ @ 133 FSB or should i go and get a thunderbird? What would be the performance difference? Remember, I can't afford much more than $350 Canadian <A HREF="http://gamershq.madonion.com/products/orb/?publish_comp..." target="_new">http://gamershq.madonion.com/products/orb/?publish_comp...;/A> More about : upgrade Anonymous a b à CPUs April 13, 2001 3:35:48 PM I don't think Abit VT6X4 is compatible with T-bird. Anyway, your choice seems fine to me. You have plenty of RAM and a good graphic card. Moving to PIII800 should well improve the performance. Anonymous a b à CPUs April 13, 2001 4:14:15 PM Thanks, I know the board doesn't support t-bird, I guess I should have mentioned that, that's the only problem, if I didn't need to buy a new motherboard, I'd goto a thunderbird in a second <A HREF="http://gamershq.madonion.com/products/orb/?publish_comp..." target="_new">http://gamershq.madonion.com/products/orb/?publish_comp...;/A> Can't find your answer ?
