I'm running ABIT BE6 II / 700 Pent (100 FSB) III Slot 1 with three sticks of 256 MG error correcting memory ATI All in Wonder 128...Cable Modem. I ran the NZ Bios for over a year very contently ... until I got the itch last night and upgraded the bios to 70.
I've not been keeping up with processors.
I have some 256 / 133 memory on hand just collecting dust. My HD and CDROM/DVD are Ultra DMA 33
I'm considering upgrading to 133 FSB Pentium® III 933EB SLOT1, SECC2, 256K Cache, Coppermine.
COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS SOUGHT. Is this worth doing for about $125.00??
Thanks in advance.

Kits ... Interesting ideas Guys ... but then I would have to buy new 266 memory which is do-able -- otherwise, the CPU sits waiting on the PC133 memory like a throttle on a car.
What is the breakpoint that CPU speed should change from PC133 to 266 speed memory?
At what speed do I _have_ to change operating systems (and to what OP SYS?)? I'm kinda married to WIN98 with all the sofrware I own.
I've got XP home upgrade and use it for Internet. With a cable modem, I'm usually waiting on the servers on the other end as is.
Supposedly, I'm to get XP Pro in a few weeks.
IF I have to get new software ... some of which is not on the market at a cheap price anymore ... then the move goes from not bad to expensive.
