aaarrrr, help

I'm wanting to up-grade my current AMD Athlon xp 2000+ to increase my cpu. My motherboard is a K7 Triton KT600 (gigabyte). What do you advise? Many thanks

The Motherboard will take a AthlonXP 3200+ Barton core cpu, but you might be better off with extra ram or going for a new socket 939 mobo & processor.

I think you will find it is a Socket A board which I think is 423pins
