Intel i810 processor upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an old Emachines Desktop that I want to carry out a processor upgrade on, currently it has a 733mhz celeron processor with struggles at times. Now I don't want anyone telling me that there isn't any point in this, because I know how old it is an I'm not expecting to just be able to pop an i7 in there and go, I'm looking at a Pentium 3 around 1Ghz or Celeron around 1.3ghz if possible? I believe this motherboard won't take a processor above 100mhz FSB but I think this should be okay as there are plenty of Pentiums and Celerons out there that meet these specs. The socket it a 370, currently it has 192mb of RAM but I believe I can get 512mb in so it should perform okay. Any advice on the best Processor to upgrade to would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ross

I'd like to say just the i810, but whats the best way to check? CPU-Z just says i810 and I know it doesn't have an AGP slot but I think it was removed my Emachines as you can see where it should be. In addition I know it won't take PC133 RAM after I made the mistake of buying some! The computer is an Emachines, Etower, C633cd.....not that anywhere on the internet recognizes it's existence.
