Ok, Ok, I know in the overall grand scheme of things, this sounds quite, well, archaic, but what the hell.........

Finances always being a consideration, I managed to consciously comprehend that my computer mobo can take up to a 500Mhz processor, significant because I've been running a 300Mhz processor for almost 5 years now (yeah, yeah, I know - so nineties).

So, I found an AMD K6-2/500 processor at http://www.newegg.com for a whopping $16 with free shipping.

Got it today and after some trial and error - that puppy is working and for just a 200Mhz jump, it's a heck of an improvement!

Can't wait to grow up and join the 21st Century :lol:

It's so nice now not to have to watch graphics draw up on the screen :shock:

Anyone else done some kewl upgrades lately?

Cheers,

Hmm, that sounds like EDO RAM (72-pin)?

I'm running two sticks of PC100 SDRAM, 64MB each. I've got one more slot for SDRAM open, but most likely I'll just wait and build a new system when the $$$ is right (hopefully soon :roll: )

I love the goofy codenames they give their processor cores. AMD says my core codename for my K6-2/500 is "Chomper" :lol:

I've been drooling over the new AMD 64 processors 8)

Core - "Clawhammer" :lol:

Thanks for the offer, bring' em, If I can't use em, somebody can I bet :wink:

Cheers,
