You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.

    if you have the money, I would recommend upgrading your motherboard to a AM2 socket, and then you can upgrade your processor and ram cheaper..

    A good AM2 motherboard will run around $80-$220 CAN

    yes, it will be safe for your motherboard.. If you are really hesitant, the AMD Athlon (without the XP) are the most compatible. The only thing that you may need to do it buy a better power supply, and make sure you have plenty of fans. Also, make sure the CPU that you buy comes with a heatsink made for it (most will have one included in the box)...

    That is why I suggested a new motherboard, as you will find more compatible and readily available CPU's for the newer mobo's.

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 09, 2008

    Should have gone for a motherboard with AM2 or pentium equivilant. You cannot use dual-core in that motherboard, so you are limited to a MAX Pentium III...

    This is probably the highest you can use:

    Family Intel Pentium III
    Part number RK80530PZ017256
    RK80530PZ017256 s-specs QLL1 SL64W SL6HR
    RK80530PZ01725E s-spec SL64W
    Frequency (MHz) 1400
    Bus speed (MHz) ? 133
    Clock multiplier ? 10.5
    Package 370-pin Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array with heatspreader (FC-PGA2)
    1.95" x 1.95" (4.95 cm x 4.95 cm)
    Socket Socket 370

    Architecture / Microarchitecture
    Processor core Tualatin
    Manufacturing process 0.13 micron
    Data width 32 bit
    Floating Point Unit Integrated
    Level 1 cache size ? 16 KB instruction cache
    16 KB data cache
    Level 2 cache size ? Full-speed on-die 8-way set associative 256 KB cache
    Multiprocessing Uni-processor
    Features MMX technology
    SSE instructions

    You may be able to find one of these more easily:

    Intel Pentium III 1GHz 133MHz 256K FCPGA CPU

    Unfotunately, Pentium 3 is pretty much phased out.. Even the Pentium 4's are going out the window...

    Any way you can change the motherboard for another one? (you will find cheaper chips as well for a newer motherboard)

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 09, 2008

    I think you were better off with the older motherboard as it uses AMD and has better compatibility...

    The motherboard you just bought is pretty much out-dated...

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.

Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

Can i upgrade my 800mh amd duron to a newer type of processor and whith one can you help

On the CPU socket, thats the white plastic socket, with the arm. You will see written on it, the socket number.
The socket number may also be written near the RAM modules, so keep an eye out for it.

Socket 472
Socket 754
Socket 939
Socket 940
Socket AM2
Socket AM2+/AM3

Your CPU you will find currently fits into one of the first two being
Socket 472
Socket 754

Now with this information you can use Google and find all the CPU's that fit into your Socket/mainboard.

All the best!

I have a AMD processor 700 Mhz with 1Gb ram, my system problem is that when i do a multitasking work my system strucks and i have to restart my system

Well firstly, your RAM is more than sufficient for multitasking so that's not the problem. You could however do with a slightly faster processor. There is a full list at Wikipedia, this link will take you straight there. I would personally recommend at least a Duron 1100 at 1.1GHz. Because this range of processor is a single core, it will struggle when it comes to multi-tasking. I will however congradulate you on using AMD, I find these to be the best value for money and are great performers.

Amd duron 850mhz

It's a good processor but old enough. The introduction date was Jan-2001 and the price at introduction $149. For todays programs is a bit old. Why do you want to go for a processor like that?

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Download a small utility called CPUID from or use this direct download link "". Using this utility you can analyze your system hardware statistics and also you can find the RAM capacity supported in your system along with various other RAM parameters. It will also show you the available free RAM slots to use, as well. I hope this is useful to you.

CPU upgrade

Your motherboard has a good support for various Processors. If you want to go for the latest then you can go for Palamino core Athlon 4.Its compatible all the KV7 series boards but all you have to check is "Till WHAT clock speed can your board support?" .
