Can anyone tell me how to upgrade my CPU? I have a Pentium 4 1.3 Ghz, but I want like a 2.6 Ghz or something like that. Where should I go to buy, and what processors are compatible with my motherboard? If you don't know, can you point me to some kind of resource? Thanks.
it would be nice to what motherboard you have. that way we can officially find out the fastest supported process through the manufacturer's website.
but if you don't know, here's some info that will help...
the pentium processor you have now is socket 423, which means it has 423 pins. so, your motherboard would only support socket 423 cpu's. the fastest socket 423 processor is 2.0ghz. anything faster and you'll need a new socket 478 motherboard which might entail new memory, too.
