I am thinking of increasing the power of my pc by installing a higher powered processor in place of the present 400 mhz one. I dont suppose it`s as simple as it sounds so what else would be involved please. I have a 20GB hard drive and 384 mb of memory. Would it be a cost effective proposition? Any comments would be appreciated.Meshuga.
After having a look on the Internet I found this site click here
and some of the info Socket 7 Motherboard, MICRO ATX AL11, supports Intel Pentium processor/Pentium MMX technology, AMD K5/K6/K6-2, and Cyrix 6x86/6x86L/6x86MX/MII processors. integrated audio/video, 3 PCI slots, Aladdin 5 chipset, UDMA/33 It looks like an old board and I doubt you could upgrade it enough to make any reqal difference.
Thanks to all responses. The info I posted came from Belarc and shows it as the mother board. As Legolas has said, it is an old board, circa 1995 , and may prove an expensive upgrade so will have a rethink. Many thanks to all. Meshuga.
SiSoft Sandra is a very reasonable programme, but it can tell a few fibs at time, as you may find, if you do a PCA forum search.Usually the free downloads of cover disk versions, have some of the modules 'locked-out'.
aida32 is one of the simpler, and free programmes, that requires consideration.But if you are not sure, why not install all three, Belarc, aida and Sandra.I have worked them together, with no problems.What one doesn't tell you, the other one may.
