I currently have a PIII-450 o/c'd to 558Mhz...
it runs fine with office stuff but in some games
it locks up quite a bit.
What is the fastest Slot 1 PIII I can upgrade to?
The Abit site says the BE-6 supports the PIII450-700....but the BE6-II with the same Slot 1 and 440BX chipset is offered in bundle with a PIII-800
by Multiwave and others. I'd like to upgrade as high as possible and no longer have to overclock.

Here is the quote:

Supports PIII 750Mhz, 800Mhz,850Mhz(100Mhz FSB) CPUs and Celeron 667Mhz,700(66)Mhz CPUs
