Not with that motherboard. Did you want to experiment with dual processors or did you have a specific need for dual processores?

Dual processor mbs are usually used on servers and require specific processors like Xeons or Pentium Extremes, and are usually slower than PCs.

I have never seen an upgrade card for a CPU that had a PCI interface. Are you sure is not a Intel Slot 1 to Intel Socket 370 adapter card? It would be used to allow Socket 370 processors to be used in the older P-II and P-III Slot 1. That would not work on your computer.
Unless your computer has two CPU sockets on the motherboard next to each other you cannot install a second processor.

Acklan, is it possible to use that kind of adapter card to upgrade my PII cpu to a higher end processor on the market?

It depends on what you have and where you want to go.

Here's an example of an adapter:

Truthfully, you're better off changing the MB and the processor for new technology. You may run into other problems trying to do things like this.

You can upgrade a P-II P-III slot 1 to a Celeron 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4ghz socket 370 processor. It's plug and play. It will support 66mhz, 100mhz, and 133mhz bus speeds. If you have the processor you can buy just the adapter for about $60, or a processor and adapter for $120.

I have updated over 40 P-II and P-III 100mhz computers using this adapter. Dells require a special plug ($7) to install. If you have time play thier video on upgrding the processor. It is very simple.
