hit OK
that first screen that comes up with give you the cpu speed tight down to the last hz :-)

Well, the dxdiag report proves him wrong, as does the My Computer properties page. though pentium chips run differently than amd chips now, it's roughly as follows... amd 1900 is roughly equivilent to a pentium 4 1.9gig... even though the amd is actually just a 1.6ghz cpu... an amd 2200 is equivilent to a pentium 2.2gig, even though it's actually a 1.8mhz

so, you can see, even if the guy told you you had the equivilent to a 2200, it would still have to show an actual 1.8mhz...

The thing is, if your board uses a 1.2ghz cpu, it might not even be able to use a 2200 cpu, so you might not be able to swap it out for a better cpu... that's why you need to know the name and model number of your motherboard

I think we've exhausted this topic, no? :-)
