Presently running an Athlon XP 1700+, 768 DRR Ram, nvidia gForce 5500 video card

I found a new Althlon XP 2400+, which I believe will give me 2.0GHz+. The tech
site indicates my MB can be upgrade to an Athlon XP 2600+ (Thoroughbred).

Any recomendations or suggestions about this upgrade?

Go with the 2400+, you'll have a better chance of finding a "fart in a Hurricane" than you would finding a T-bred 2600+...

Besides, the speed difference of 133MHz will not even be noticed between the 2400+ and the 2600+...

You could also search through the forum and see if a XP mobile will work on your board...Bigger L2 cache = slightly better performance.
