Updating Processor and Motherboard

  MatElstead 14:57 14 Mar 2004

My current processor is an Intel Celeron 633Mhz with a Via Advance 10B Motherboard. I want to upgrade both but I am uncertain about which upgrades would suit the rest of my system ie Windows XP (Home); BT Broadband; 2 Hard Disks (80Gb + 40Gb); 256 Ram; Sapphire Radeon 9000 graphics card, etc
Can anyone advise please (I don't want to spend a small fortune and I don't play games, other than Flight Simulator).

If you have sdram would be best to ditch that as well,what budget are you looking at?

I've just bought and installed a pre made/test motherboard kit from here

It was easy to install even for me only a small problem with how the processor was reported but that was solved with the help of forum members(Cheers Rayuk)

I asked here about the same query a while back and some raised issues with old and new motherboard drivers so I keep that in mind.
