Default What CPU for ECS P6BXT-A+

I have the ECS P6BXT-A+ motherboard in my computer and want
to upgrade my CPU to 800 MHz from the existing 400 MHz.

Elite Group does not provide any support for that board anymore.

Anybody can tell me what CPU is compatible ?

( I use Intel Pentium II )

I have to suggest getting a new computer. Pentium II are ancient, it will be very very hard to find a processor that will work with that mobo. You can get a new computer very cheap that will be lightning compared to the computer you're trying to upgrade.

You may be able to find a processor to upgrade on ebay or something if you can't get a new computer. You should try and find out what socket that mobo uses to find a processor that will work.

I really suggest investing in a new rig. you could get a pretty decent system for less than $500, and it'll be nothing compared to your current computer.
