  1. I have no clue about upgrading the processors.
    I want to know how to do it and whether it is worth to do it.
    One is 2xPentium11 and the other one is AMD K6 2. What will be the maximum Mhz for each one.

    Pentium II's use slot one mobos so you might go as high as PentiumIII 1400MHz with powerleap adapter "slocket" provided your mobo supports the proc and the fsb. k6-2 are on the same socket7 as the original pentium 586 and will only go as high as the fastest k6-2 i believe it wuz 500Mhz. good luck

    The original Pentium used Socket 5. Newer Socket 7 or Super Socket 7 mainboards could use K6-3 / 500 MHz or K6-2 / 550, those are the fastest in their series.

    Most of the dual P-III systems I've seen go to a maximum of a 550MHz Pentium III.

    Otherwise, I imagine the absolute maximum speed would be 450MHz Pentium IIs... Per slot of course.
