I am running a duron 800 processor with 256ram and win XP Pro. I am thinking of upgrading my processor any suggestions or advice would be welcome. I have an ECS K7S5A MB I think it takes up to an Athlon 2600.

Depending on the Bios revision you are using click here and your RAM bieng pc2100 you should be able to go to an Athlon 2400
Second link say's it will do all athlon XP version with the correct bios
The new Barton 2500+ is a good buy at the moment IMHO
Don't forget that unless your power supply is at least 300W, you may need to replace it.
I am ok for PSU size. So depending on which processor I get I might need to upgrade my BIOS?
I may be interested in buying your 800 Duron if the price is right to upgrade my 2nd PC which is an Athlon 650. The MoBo will take an 800 max.
yes (depending on what bios revision you now have)but you will need to do this before you remove the old processor and install the new one.You will not be able to use the BARTON
You cannot use a Barton Core processor as it is 333Mhz and your board is only 200/266Mhz
Sorry AndySD, must refresh more often
