Don't use those converters; if the MB has a 24-pin header you should be using a native 24-pin PSU.

so...you are NOT asking if a 550Mhz P3 will beat a 1Ghz P3

 

instead you are asking if a 1Ghz P3 will fit into the same socket as a P3 550Mhz?

 

you should be more clear on the questions you ask

 

 

if your P3 550Mhz is a slot1 then no, because the P3 1Ghz was a socket 428 or something (not a slot)

 

don't use slot converters either

 

 

psu: don't use converters on these either to make your psu a 24 pin if it was originally a 20-pin.

 

you can down-convert from a 24-pin to a 20-pin however.

It depends on the CPU interface (Slot 1 or Socket 370), chipset, and possibly the BIOS version. You can try using CPU-Z, Everest, etc. to find your motherboard make/model then do some research on whether it will support the new CPU. Sometimes the latest BIOS revision will add support to later/faster processors as well.

Sure, believe me - I need it... I am on a 550mhz now running xp with 384 ram.

Well download Belarc advisor and post your findings when you figure out what you are working with. Its a diagnostic utility, and will tell you everything you need to know about your Hardware/Software.

my p3 550 is one of those "slide in" slots, whatever # that is. and the p3 1000mhz is not a slide in. It did fit, so i tried it, I REALLY *HAVE NOTHING* to lose, but it wouldnt do anything after power-on.
