Duron 800 upgrade?

  Dagwoood 01:14 21 Jan 2004

My current cpu is a duron 800 and I was wandering whether it is possible to upgrade to a duron 1800 and not have to go to the expense of changing my motherboard. I can't see what my current motherboard is from my system/hardware information utilities and thought that as I have a duron cpu already that another duron cpu would be compatable, as I think all duron's have a "A" socket interface. (I don't know whether it's relevant but I think my motherboard has a integrated graphics card and I think the cpu is on top of this). Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Get this installed on your system,it tells you what cpu/mobo/hdd make model ID number,and a host of other info.I dont think that DURON's go upto 1800mhz,although you are correct that AMD's Socket A cpu's will fit.The main prob is the mobo,it might not accept the faster cpu's,as its FSB might only be 100.
