Processor Upgrade Help

  Kitsunae 08:05 31 Dec 2003


I'm running a Packard Bell Multimedia S606 computer, Pentium 233mhz with MMX Technology. I've been trying all day to find out what processor I can upgrade to, without needing a new motherboard/BIOS. (by the way, it's PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0)

In order to get high-speed cable internet, I need atleast a 300mhz processor. Can anyone help me, or atleast point me in the right direction?

hi Kitsunae

had a search and ye its hard to find anything on your pc. only upgradeoptions that i have found are for memory and all other items list your pc with 233 cpu, so it looks as if you will need to get a new mobo and cpu.

if funds are tight heres a few options to upgrade to if your not looking for anything that flies.

click here cpu list

click here motherboard list

click here memory list

on memory you will need pc2100 ddr
