hi all.

After my computer motherboard died and the shop replaced it on the cheap, a limited income I have, they gave to me a
SIS741GX-MN sempron motherboard/chip.
a 2666/333 166 type of board, probably "very cheap".

I find that my morrowind game would be "happy" with a faster cpu processor.
the motherboard is not on eaveryone's lips, not the hottest new thing, thus I find little info about it.

I really would like a faster processor than the 1800 that I have now.
but i have windows 98se!

there surely must be an upper limit of Processors before I need winxp to run it.


so my question is....
what is the fastest, best, processor, that I can use, for this motherboard with win98se?!

thanks....freestone

Is the mainboard a PCChips/ECS or Asrock motherboard. You need to find out who made your motherboard, go to their website and look up the CPU support, sometimes the cpu list is in the bios revision notes on the manufacturers webpage.

The string "SIS741GX-MN" brought up a bit over 800+ hits on the web, so not too much to go on. Seem like some kind of bulk motherboard with no definite brand, but likely its origins from PCcchips/ECS line.

# Supported Processors:
# AMD Athlon XP/Sempron/Duron
# Socket A processors
# 200/266/333 MHz FSB


So likely it tops out at Athlon XP3000+ /333MHz and Sempron 3000+ socketA/462.

Win98se is not a limiting factor in this matter.

I was searching web for a possible Athlon 2200+ Thoroughbred Socket A/462 motherboard and found the one you mention here, listed at the GEEKS.com website.

They list manufacturer as CelSky, supported by Geeks.com.
This link says out of stock:

This link says available:

though, I do not find a celsky manufacturer site....

P.S. ... yes, I joined forum just to post this reply... well, and maybe it will be useful on AMD support/tech issues in future.

windows 98/ xp is just an operating system, it has nothing to do with your processor. you could run the fastest most expensive cpu in the world on windows 98 if you wanted.
