Ok i have decided to upgrade my old 1.8 Ghz P4 to a 2.8a P4 (all for gaming). It is a socket 478 and i believe my motherboard supports 533/400 mhz FSB. Now i have run various free ware programs such as CPU-Z, and Everest (before it was taken off the website) and i cannot for the life of me figure out the name of my motherboard. I know its an IBM and the chipset is 845G but this is all i can find out. Is there anyway to figure out the actual name of my motherboard?
I'd really like to know the name of the board to know for sure that my CPU will be compatible...do i need to actually look up the motherboard or can i just assume from the chipset that the new CPU will work?
Thanks for your help guys and gals!
