Best CPU to upgrade my old computer with

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Am upgrading my uncles old Gateway and was wondering what the best
socket 7 CPU there is out there. It currently has a AMD K6-2 500mhz cpu. Its a model Gateway LC 500. Motherboard has model number mp4m-23agm stamped on it. I believe its a samsung mobo. Its crap if you ask me but he insists on upgrading this.

Ok, I'll brb with an answer because I alwase mess with socket 7 rigs and I know my way the best around them.

EDIT: quoted from this article http://www.tomshardware.com/2000/11/...t_7/page3.html
''The new AMD K6-III+/500 is shown here, which is the fastest CPU for Socket7! Equipped with an 256 kB on-Die L2 cache it reaches impressive benchmark results.''

I think that's abot as fast as they get, but since I am guessing the mobo can run a 100mhz fsb I think it can run some sort of adapter for a faster cpu from a better socket, if there are any. I'll be back with an answer to that too, lol.

2nd EDIT: I can't seem to find any but there may be one to allow him to use an early socket a cpu like the old thunderbirds that run @100mhz fbs. Here is a guid for getting a k6 to 600mhz http://www.tomshardware.com/2000/07/...t_7/page4.html, but it has to be the k6-2+
