Is it possible to fit a CPU AMD ATHLON 900 mhz, on a mobo that has been running a CPU intel Pentium 2, 333mhz ?? The socket seem to match perfectly.
Thanks, and you all have a lovely Christmas and a happy new year 2006.

If I do try it on, would it damage my mobo ?

You would destroy the processor or the motherboard if you did this, probably both.
