    Deskpro EN is the model. There was the EN and the EP and I think an EX.
    Those came after the 2000/4000/6000 series

    Those are just the CPU speed so you can select the correct one quite easily.
    the /810 /820 is the chipset on the mainboard so open the case and take a
    peek at the speed/chipset to tell for sure.

    I'm almost dead certain that the model is a 6450 with an Intel 440BX chipset.
    The transition to 810 and 815 chipsets did not happen for Compaq until Socket
    370 Pentium III. Some of the slow Slot 1 Celerons such as the 6333c may have
    used a variant of 440BX such as 440EX or 440ZX. Maybe even the older 440LX.
    Haven't looked inside one for a while... Ben Myers
