Well, if you'd like a celeron 400 chip (will run at 500 happily and with
slot 1 convertor) I have one you can have for free. I upgraded my board
(Abit be6, also 440bx) to a celeron 1.1GHz! The only change I needed to make
was change the slot 1 convertor to one which handled cuppermine chips (wired
slightly differently I believe).
What's you MB? You might be able to go higher if you want to. Top limit is
probably 1.1GHz for the celerons because the 1.2GHz changes the design
somewhat (can't remember the name, but I don't think their compatible with
the bx chipset). I got my chip from Scan rather than from Maplins (just
because I was getting other items as well).
