  1. Pentium III's beyond 1GHz are Tualatins, the 0.13u version of the Pentium III. They probably won't run on your mobo, as they require a bit lower voltage. I *think* (not sure on this) that "fcpga2" refers to the Tualatin socket--which I believe is physically identical to original fcpga but delivers the necessary lower voltage for Tualatins.

    Personally, I'd just O/C your current CPU if you want more speed. 733 isn't all that slow, and I believe it can be pushed to 800 or 900. Crashman can probably tell you more....

  2. for the price of this chip your better off just overclocking ig the one you have

  3. Have to agree with the others. Between the price and the probable need for a new board or at least a converter of some sort, and the fact that it hasn't been out long enough to see how reliable it is, I'd leave it for a while.
