I,m trying to upgrade my cpu from A pentium III 450 100mhz bus to a 1 gig chip but I'm told by Dell which is were I bought the system that all I can go is 850. They can't tell me why I can't go to a full gig. I have a se440bx-2 motherboard runing a 4s4eb2xo.10a.0011.p03 bios. now the question is, is it the bios that prevents me from going all the way or something else? I have found pentium chips with the proper s.e.c.c.2 socket runing at the 100mhz. bus speed so what gives??

apparently the board you have is manufactured by intel and is no longer being manufactured. there may be bios updates for what you have but i wouldn't count on it supporting a 1 gig processor. but then again the only way to know for sure is to investigate http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/se440bx2/

The highest chip I found in a 100mghz board is the p3-850 everything above that is the flip-chip at 133mghz.
