Question EliteGroup (ECS) K7SOM+ (Rev. 7.x) Motherboard HELP!!!!!

Hello, I had a quick question and was just wondering, what AMD Proccessor type do I need for this EliteGroup Motherboard? On the receipt that I have for the PC, it says the board is a "ESC K7SOM+ W/ AMD Duron 1800+ CPU SOUND VIDEO & LAN" When I look into a bit more, I find out this Information:

Exact Board Name: EliteGroup (ECS) K7SOM+ (Rev. 7.x)
CPU Speed: 1.2Ghz
CPU Type: AMD Duron
Processor Model: 7
Stepping: 1
Memory Capacity: 2048MB
Memory Banks:2 (2 X 1GB DDR RAM per slot)
Memory Supported Speeds: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR PC4000

So my problem is, I cannot find out exactly what type of processor there is because the PC says 1.2Ghz and the Receipt says it is a AMD 1800+ CPU. I am looking to upgrade and am wondering what Pin Type (Socket Type) I would need for this motherboard. Etc. Thanks for Your help!!!!

It's definitel socket A, those processors are like a 4th generation back, so they are pretty cheap, but ihard to find. f you want to upgrade more than just the processor, than upgrade to at least socket 754, 939 or even AM2, but here is all the Socket A(462) cpu's that I found lol in a quick search, its an athlon xp 2200 for liek 43 bux,


New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
