    processor and 3d card upgrade
    By Cloudsky August 08, 2001, 11:50 PM

    Can my Epox 8KTA3 motherboard fit a AMD Thunderbird 1.0 ghz or a 1.4 ghz processor in it.Can and Ati Radeon 32mb ddr or a Geforce 2 gts 32mb fit in to it too?Thanks in advance

    Yes, I believe so.

    Why not? Unless I misunderstood your definition of "fit", your Epox 8KTA3 can accommodate those and future T-Birds as long as their pin-outs don't change (like the P4). Your board is capable of 133MHz FSB (266FSB if you wish) and up so no prob. Same with the video cards, too, coz you have an AGP port (up to 4X).

    Just curious: what do you have in your 8KTA3 right now???

    By Cloudsky August 09, 2001, 04:26 AM

    oh,i have a AMD 750mhz Duron,Nivida TNT2 32mb m64,128ram,20.4gb and a Creative pci sound card.

    Hey, you've got it made, man! Your upgrade should be good to go . Just be sure to get a 133 FSB T-Bird instead of the 100 FSB types. Of course, you can still use the 100 FSB T-Birds on your 8KTA3, but you won't be maximizing your mobo's FSB, which normally runs at 133 MHz. Besides, the price diff between the two types are sooooooo slim.

    Thanks for all the info onyan
