QUOTE(Mozdzer @ Oct 2 2005, 10:10 AM)I'm trying to upgrade from a AMD Duron 700MHz to a Athlon 1400MHz, but I can't seem to find anything on it. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Mozdzer - I just upgraded from a AMD Duron 750 MHZ to a 1400 MHZ AMD Athlon Thunderbird and I'm quite satisfied with the results. Search by my name to see my other posts concerning this. You should be able to get a 1.2, 1.3, or 1.4 GHZ AMD Athlon on eBay or places that sell used parts like www.geeks.com (that's where I got my 1.4 GHZ for $53 and $7 shipping). I just looked to see what they currently have and found a 1.3 GHZ AMD Athlon for sale: http://www.geeks.com/details.a...tid=A1300AMS3B&cat=CPU

You can buy a barebones system for $150-$250 and transfer in your HDs and CD/RWs into it. The cheapest, bottom of the line system today will still outperfrom your upgraded machine by leaps and bounds. I plan to build a new machine later next year, so this move for me is a temporary one.
Good luck with your choice!
