I displaced a few XP chips during a recent spate of upgrading. Wanting to get use out of them and keeping $$ outlay to a bare minimum, I came upon the idea of getting a rev 1.3 KT7A, throwing an XP chip in it , pulling my BP6, w it's dual Celerons, out of it's current home ( my first build ) and getting an instant minimum 1,100 MHz speed jump( or so I'm hoping). All for $49 ( for the new motherboard ).
I have a 1.33 TBird in a rev 1.0 version of this board and am real familiar with, and fond of it.
What I want to know is what XP chips will the rev 1.3 board run? Any Palomino?
Is anybody here running this combo? What CPU do you use in it? How does it work for you?
Also, 2 last questions
- Does the board handle 512MB DIMMS?
- How many DIMM slots can I use? Am hoping for 3 . (1 512 and 2 256's)
Any input would be much appreciated!
