    I have an e-tower 333c Cyrix M2 processor 20 gig hard drive, 96 megs of Ram...(upgradeable to 256) with a TriGem Delhi3 board - Socket 7
    I'm thinking of upgrading the CPU, but it looks to me like the best I can do without major surgery is 366..... e-machines went to socket 370 after that.
    Can I get a socket 7 chip higher than 366 that will be compatible with my board? KENNY

    For the difference in money it may be worth looking at AMD durons and a new motherboard, the "slower" durons are very inexpensive now and a socket A mobo guarantees upgradeability in the future (eg athlon etc)

    I believe the fastest socket 7's are the AMD's that top out at 550 mhz.

    You may want to have a look around the e-machines Help Site to get an idea of what will work with your system.

    Thanks, JAKOVAL...all I wanted to know, and more.
    I had e-mailed the e-machine tech support, but I figured I'd get a faster answer from you guys. That "overclocking site" was great.
