I am thinking of buying a more powerful Processor, how do I know which one is compatible with my motherboard?

Go to your Motherboards Web Site

Oget a new Motherboard for the CPU you wish to use

Let us know what motherboard you have, or you can go to the manufacturers website your self.

Thanks BarryKeith I assume that 2600+ is the most powerful I can have?

2600+ yes but note it is the 266 not the 333 and they are not easy to come by.

heres a link to the 2400+ click here
komplett is the cheapest for cpu only or simply for retail (includes heatsink & fan).

dont remember there being a 2600+ with 266mhz fsb

What is the difference between 266 and 333? What is it? I presume I can only use 266 whatever it is!

its how many mhz your processor will run at , with athlons i understand that they run best when alongside the same type memory . e.g for a 2400+ use pc 2100
