    You were kind to help me with the question below. After that, events
    happened that had me postpone the cpu upgrade.
    I would like to purchase a new cpu but a bit confused when I go to
    priceline as to which cpu is compatible. What is the specific
    nomenclature I should look for?



    No, yes.

    All of them.

    Multiplier x FSb = cpu speed.

    The AMD 761 supports a 133MHz FSB. 24x133.34 = 3200MHz. That's the top
    speed you can get without overclocking the FSB. There are currently no AND
    Athlon cpu's that run over 2250MHz (unless overclocked). See link below.
    I'd probably suggest a 2400+ for your board.

    -- Abit KT7-Raid (KT133) Tbred B core CPU @2400MHz (24x100FSB)
