processor advice needed

  [email protected] 11:56 16 Feb 2004

I have an old PC100 system board fitted with an AMD K6 150Mhz processor can anyone advise me what the fastest processor the system can take.

From The Manual "This mainboard is installed with a socket-7, and any socket-7 processor can be installed. the mainboard supports system bus speeds of 60, 66, 75, 83, 95, 100Mhz."

Its running 298mb pc100 sdram.

I realise it won't match todays standards but i would like it to run programs a little faster

Many Thanks for the links. I just thought there may be a cheap way to get a bit more speed from the pc without major surgery.

I am open to suggestions as major surgery will remain on hold till the wife leaves her purse laying round.
