    I have an eMachines PC which I purchased back in 2001. It has a 600 Mhz Celeron processor in it currently, and over the past few years, I've upgraded the RAM and hard drives to turn it into a fairly nice PC. It has always been very reliable, so I don't see any reason to buy a new one if I could just upgrade the processor in mine. I realize that system bus will limit how fast this PC will operate, but I have also heard that their are limitations on the maximum speed that could be installed, even if you're using the correct CPU format (slot 1, socket 370, etc.). Anybody know how to determine the fastest CPU that I could install in this PC? I know mine is a socket 370, and they make Celeron socket 370's all the way up to 1.4 Ghz, but I don't know if my system would accept a 1.4 Ghz CPU? Please don't respond telling me just to buy a new PC. Thanks!

    That site was exactly what I needed! It even had a section for finding out that exact info! This forum is great. Thanks so much for your help!
