My motherboard is only a 800mhz but I saw on a web site that it can go up to 1.25ghz how do I do this? is it possible to upgrade just by downloading? or am I just really confused? Do I need new drivers or do I just need a new motherboard? I cant be bothered at this stage to buy a 3.2ghz so can I do it ? Sorry bout all da Q's but I really dont know bout this stuff. cheers GDOGG ;) ;)

Well.. you cant, unfortunately, download anything to increase that. I assume your talking about the CPU mhz, in which case you can buy another CPU as long as it is the same socket size. For example, a P4 (socket 478) can range from 1ghz up to 3.2ghz (I believe the 3.2 is a socket 478, if its not then it will up to 3ghz but either way you get the gist of it) Now if your talking FSB (Front Side Bus) your in for some tedious work there..lol. better just to purchase a new board as I wouldnt reccomend trying to change out bus even to the master solderer.

Well, cuz some P3's arent cheap. I mean the last time I looked the coppermine (P3) was going for like 400 bux at comp usa. Course seemingly over night things change. .. go figure.

800mhz, computer is most likely a p3 ,not a P4,or may even be a AMD 800, And my opinion is it will cost you big time to upgrade iit to a P4 , new board ,and processor and Ram ,just to start wit h!
