Newbie here. I have a PII 500Mhz on an Abit BX6 rev2. I was thinking about upgrading the processor to a PIII, but I was wondering what is the fastest processor that would work with my mobo? Would getting a Slot1 to Socket370 adapter change the kind or speed of CPU I could get?
I realize that changing the mobo+CPU+memory to AMD would be more cost effective, but I'm looking for the simplest upgrade.
YOu can run the PIII 1000EB on your motherboard at 7.5x133, provided you have PC133 memory and a fairly recent video card. You can use a slotket if unable to find the Slot 1 version. The FC-PGA PIII 1000EB goes for around $130, the slotket for around $10, and a good cooler for around $10.
