Thanks... that is what I'm currently running in it...

It was a noticable jump up from the 300 (in theory 33%).  I have
a 450 on it's way to me ... but that increment will only be 12%
more than the 400... a 500/550 would show a better jump... and a
K6-2+ or K6-3+ (or even K6-3 but it might run too hot with that)
would show better, as it has built in L2 cache, and makes the
mainboard L2 cache an L3 cache.... more cache.. more performance...
