Good luck finding anything higher than 200Mhz, there are supposed to
be 233Mhz and 266Mhz CPU's but I've been unable to find any, and they
saw very limited release. I'm not sure but I think the Vectra XA
might be the box that I have (nice system if it is), I bumped mine up
from 150Mhz to 200Mhz, and would really like to find a 266Mhz for it.
The only real chance for an upgrade is to get a PPro overdrive
(Pentium II), though I think I'd rather find a PPro 200 with 2MB
cache (this is the first I've heard of such a beast, or a 300Mhz
