i have a presario desktop 5600S with amd k6 3D and 128 MB ram running on win98; i would like to increase cpu by installing an athlon 1,4GHZ instead; is it doable; i was worried that the other pieces of hardware being older may not be able to function properly with new cpu; this pc is primarily used to run foxpro database application, very cpu intensive (running 24-7); also i am not sure if it is possible at all, same sockets(?), same size,...; or what the potential problems may be.
i have the same question for a desktop presario 5861 with amd k7 3D and 128 MB ram using win2000; this one does the same (at night), but runs a realtime application connected to internet with constant data flow during the day, + associated applications; same question with athlon 1,4 ghz.
thank you very much
