Maximum processor for my board?

  Will 22:19 26 Dec 2007

I have a MSI K8T NEO 1.0 Mother board with an AMD Athlon 64 2Gig Processor (754 socket). I am trying to find out what the maximum chip my board can take as the cheapest upgrade at the moment. I have been to the AMD and MSI sites to try and identify what the maximum chip is that I can put into the board but can't really find it. Can anybody help, advise or tell me a simple site that I can use. Thanks in advance!

look on the motherboard, near the PCI slots and see if it's marked as a MS-7094

That was for a 939 socket.

Look at this click here

I thought that the last Socket 754 processor to be made was the Athlon 64 3700+, I could be wrong though.

Quiller, Maj and Press Man thanks for the replies they are very useful. I see that the max I can go to on this board is an AMD 64 2800 which will give me a 2.4 gig system. I can do this for about £50 which will stave off the procurment of a new mother board bundle or building a new system till the spring/summer when it is usually cheaper. My next question would be how do you over clock a system? The system does have "Dynamic Overclocking Technology" could I improve on this?

I Have seen the maximum I can fit is a Athlon 64 3800 which gives me a 2.4gig system but looking throught the board manual and the utilities I have used "Cool'n'Quiet" which has allowed me to over clock my 2 gig chip to 2.36 gigs. I know there may be stability problems but I will see how it goes. Thanks to all for the inspiration to plug away at the problem.
