Question about MSI K7N2G-L Motherboard
I own the nforce2 K7N2G mobo (about 4-5 years ago) and have the AMD Athlon XP 2600+. I'm looking into getting the fastest possible CPU for it, as the last "umph" for my system before my next major upgrade. Mine is MSI, and on the website it says:
CPU • Supports Socket A for AMD® Athlon(tm)/Athlon(tm) XP/Duron(tm) processors @FSB 200/266/333 • Supports 600MHz up to Athlon(tm) XP 2700+ processor or higher
What does it mean when they say "2700+ processor OR HIGHER"? How can TRULY determine what's the fastest supported-CPU is?
Thanks for your help!
Look for socket A processors and ignore the XXXX+ and focus on the XXXXMHz rating (the MoBo's manufacturer's support site will give you the max processor your Board will handle). Since you mention that your MoBo is 4 to 5 years old, you'll probably better serve yourself to replace the MoBo and processor (you'll be able to upgrade to a much better/faster processor by upgrading both, and shouldn't cost that much more), and probably be happier with the result. You may want/need to upgrade your Power supply while you are at it too.
