I have an old IBM 300PL 6565-60U I want to use as an 90s/Early 2000s gaming PC. I would like to upgrade it's 533MHZ slot 1 Katmai PIII to a Tualatin PIII. I believe it is this processor. I realize I need a slotket adapter. Will this work?

Kind of depends more on whether the slotket will work with your new CPU. Couple of Socket 370 layouts floating around, and I don't remember them being 100% compatible. As long as your chipset supports 133 FSB, then that's half the battle.


Honestly, it's not much of an upgrade.  There are more than a few Slot 1 CPUs floating around that are quicker, and you don't have to worry about compatibility problems.
