Hi am useing a KTUltra (MS-6380E v1.X mother board, 1Gb of memory, with a athlon 1800 cpu,
?? is it worth getting a new CPU ..if so wich one???

probably not there is very little chance of finding anything much better for that mobo wait till it is time to replace mobo cpu and ram

Howard64 is quite correct,i believe your board will upgrade to Athlon XP 3000+ Barton chip however i really dont think your going to see much difference.

Wait till its time for a new mobo or pc and go for a dual core setup.

I have the same mobo but with an Athlon 2100+. A while ago I concluded a cpu upgrade was pointless because I can only find suitable chips on Ebay, they are relatively expensive, and I'm not convinced I'd see the difference.

My next 'upgrade' will be to core 2 duo / pci-express DX10 graphics / DDR2 memory / SATA HDD's / Vista etc etc. ie a completely new pc

A good site I used recently to check for a similar upgrade click here
Put your details where it says add comment and they reply within 24 hours with a recommended upgrade. Or yours may be on the list already.
