the 2.0ghz celerons are currently going for less than $100 usd... so i imagine the 2.2ghz will go for around $140 usd.

well, i was assuming you were going to get a new motherboard and everything.. along with a new processor.

you realize that no intel processor will work in your motherboard, right? it's a board meant for amd processors.

do you know what kind of board you have? maybe we can help you find a processor to upgrade to.

You're going to need a new motherboard if you wish to move over from AMD to intel, personaly i'd recomend sticking with what you have.
[edit]Beat me to it :D

i wouldn't suggest upgrading, ste_w... first of all, you don't seem to have any idea what kind of motherboard you have, so who knows if it will even support a faster processor. secondly, the processor you have is equivalent to a 1.7ghz p4 or 2ghz celeron. so i don't think you need to upgrade.

but if you can find out what motherboard you have, maybe we can help. why do you feel you need to upgrade, anyway? what do you do with your comp?

I Have a A7A266 Socket A Motherboard.
AliMaGiK 1 Chipset
DDR RAM/ SDRam

And i wanna upgrade my comp gradually, an i dont get how my 1.4 is faster than a 2.0?

The nxt thing i wanna upgrade is my graphics card from a geforce 3 to a NV 30 :)

Thanx

Get yourself a nice xBox instead :p :D
Your CPU is fine, if you really want to upgrade to an NV30 i'd recommend waiting and getting a lot of new hardware or perhaps even a new box altogether.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
