knowiing who makes your mobo.. would help.. but most likely you should be able to pop it in.. you should.. but i'm not any sure really with AMD... If it runs slower than it's suppose to.. you can Flash the mobo's firmware.
Thanks. In fact I downloaded version 1014 which now resides in "My Documents" and also have Flash 6 loaded, but as a newbie haven't a clue how to go from here. The Asus Manual is as clear as ditchwater to me. Hi!. All it does is to warn me of the horrible consequences of wrongdoing - prison perhaps. I will look at the site you have given me. But it would be really much easier if I could change the multiplier or some such during Boot and Delete I find that I version 1011 currently.
