Hi there, :)
Its been quite a while now...
since the time I first set out to achieve, what I had, at the time, considered to be improbable if not ..impossible. I'm a bit beyond that now. I've been realizing that , upgrading the processor of a system (even one from '1999)was and still is a conceivable idea..The main problem is how to go about it.
As Far as I'm concerned, although one has searched, one can always search more. But then again, if I've already done a sizeable amount of searching, (without making real progress) and if there IS someone who holds an solution or at least a pointer towards one) and that person is happily willing to provide that, in kindness, then why should I turn aside in self-hate?
So here I am, alas, requesting aid from those who know better than I.
Here is my dilemma, pehaps...some kind person will be able to aid me to approach a solution.
My emachines computer Contains a "
Florida-TG/TGA Micro ATX (ATX V1.2 form factor) motherboard, TriGem,
Korea Intel Socket-370 (370pin PPGA Socket) for Intel Celeron CPUs" I
would like to upgrade from a 500MHz Celeron to something Higher,
However, I don't, at this time, have any idea which processor(s) or
processor adapters i.e."FCPGA2 Tualatin Adapter for Socket 370 FCPGA"
would be compatible with my system. Please, if possible advise me of the
range of processors that are compatible with my e-machines etower 500is
A Few Specs of the chip (I picked 'em up on the web):
CPU: CPU Intel Cel-500 PPGA CPEMIN110798
CPU: Celeron 500 - 500MHz (66x7.5) - 2.0v - (socketed Mendocino) L1 cache-32 L2 cache-128 cache
Bus Architecture: PCI/ISA/AGP
Here: This Site may be a big help as well (as far as obtaining specs. goes..trust me I've been there and have been amazed at what I found. well. here it is: http://users.rcn.com/chare/cpu_proc.htm
With Much Gratitude,
