yes most will

>>is it possible to upgrade a dual slot to a 370 with an adapter .
yes, but this depends on the motherboard and the motherboard chipset.  Can you tell use your motherboard manufacturer and model.  You can use this program here to find out what it is.

just a IMHO.... the time, energy, and moolah to put a second processor onto a slot2 board, or use an adapter... would be better spent on a new technology mainboard, and cpu.... no matter what you do... you aren't going to end up with something that approached the stuff out now.

Of course, he's not asking if he can put a second processor in; just one processor, so that question is, as I would say, moot.

I am guessing he is want to upgrade from say dual 400mhz P2 to a 1ghz P3.  That is what i would assume.
