processor upgrade advise needed

  mark e 19:06 15 May 2003

I have a Gigabyte GA-7va Motherboard with 1 gig of DDR333 memory.
What type and speed processor do/can I put in the board. The manual says fsb 200/266/333mhz fsb. but which one do I need.

the numbers are getting to me, if it said put XYX or XXX in i would know which one to buy.

Cheers Mark

for the best effect get a CPu with a FSB of 333 to match your RAM. They'll be 'in synch' then and work more efficiently.

33FSB CPUs are not cheap tho.

Sorry link in 1st post I made doesnt work right,but you will find that it supports most of the current Athlons,bearing in mind bios update if you dont have the latest one which is F9.
