Dear CPU Scorekeeper

I have an HP Vectra VL2 4/66 that I'm looking to upgrade. I would like to upgrade to the currentmost Pentium.

What choice of motherboards do I have that would work with the current box that I have?

What are some vendors that you recommend?

See the questionCPU Scorekeeper Responds

Unless you have some special sentimental reasons to want to keep your Vectra box while tossing its guts into the computer graveyard, I would recommend donating box and all (it's much more useful to someone else, that way) and going for a new Pentium motherboard system that is already designed to fit together. This will make sure that you will have sufficient cooling and a power supply ample to run the latest processors and peripheral hardware.

Note that the fastest Pentium currently available at 1GHz is not really available, unless you have money to burn. Check out our CPU Scorecard to compare speeds and prices of the various Pentiums (and other CPUs) that are available. The better value systems for the price are always indicated by this Good Value score bar. The best overall (in our opinion) is indicated by this Best Value score bar. As for vendors, head straight for our price lists for a good selection of models and comparative price offerings.

Of course, you are always invited to the CPU Scorecard Store to shop for your next computer.
