    OK i opened my case and my mother board says
    P2XBL REV.B1
    I have a slot 1 350mhz intel, and 3 ram banks, w/ 64mb taking up one bank.

    Using Tweak-xp it tells me under system info PII/PII Xeon Genuine Intel.

    I need to know how much ram the pc can handle and the fastest processor I can install in the board. I have no books or boxs or anything on the board.

    I have a friend who installed a PIII 1.0Ghz slot 1 processor in his PII 450Mhz Dell board.

    I'm really looking to install a 400-500 Mhz processor and install at least 256mb of ram

    Any help I would appreciate it

    That's a tricky question to answer, because some boards can and others can't. If it can, it may simply need a BIOS update, otherwise you're SOL. I'm not sure who made your computer, but if it's something like Dell, Gateway, etc., they can tell you exactly how high you can go. You should be able to put at least a 450MHz Pentium II in. After that, it's really dependent on the motherboard.
    Just because your friends PC can accept a 1GHz chip doesn't mean yours will.
