Want to upgrade PIII 500MHz Slot 1 to 800 or 850 w/o changing other hardware on an ASUS Intel 440BX/ZX w/AGP MB w/100MHz Bus. Can I do it? What problems to watch for?

Should be no problem. Just make sure your new CPU runs @ 100 MHz bus and that your cooling is adequate.

The only proble i can see is getting hold of a slot 1 CPU.

What you may have to do is get a PPGA riser but watch the CPU bus speed.

Check the ASUS web site and confirm the mainboard will support a CPU higher that what you currently have instaled.

You have only given a class of motherboards. You have not provided the model of your motherboard to answer your question. Go to
http://www.asus.com/products/motherboard/manual_slot1.html
and download the manual for your particular motherboard. The manual will tell you the maximum processor speed your motherboard will support.
