    Hi,

    I would like to know what kind of procs I can upgrade to. I downloaded that 'WCPUID' program to find out what board I'm running, these are the results:

    This is real nice of ibm

    that's what I got when I tried to look up info on your model number

    Processor support will be determined by motherboard and bios.
    Do you know the motherboard make and model number

    Well, judging from what that program told me, I think its a '440bx/ZX/DX' chipset, as for the 'make' of the mobo I am uncertain. I've been surfin through the IBM site and this one guy said he was able to install a p3-800, but the ibm tech support just dollied out that cut and paste answer that you just posted. I am currently running a p3-450 mhz which came with the system. If I am wrong on the model #, could some one tell me how to go abouts looking for my exact model number for my motherboard. any help would be greatly appreciated. thnx

    Sam



    p.s. ok, my brother just told me, what I think is the model # of my board, tell me if this makes any sense;

    -Intel 82443BX

    if that doesn't help maybe some one can tell me how to find it
