I have a GA-7ZX Mobo. I am looking for a cheap upgrade option I believe my mobo will take a 1500 processor that and some extra sdram should tide me over for a bit until I can get my hands on some filthy lucre. One problem where can I get my old fashoned cpu?

Thanks for your replies guys. A little more info from me.I went to the gigabyte site. The fastest cpu my mobo can take is AthlonXP 1500+(Palomino,.18u) with system bus of 200MHz often called FSB.The two cpu's in the link are 266.My system does not not support 266.I'll keep looking around. In the meantime if anybody comes across one, please let me know. Thanks.
