I have a Compaq with a Celeron 325 Prescott socket 478 @ 2533 MHz, 133MHz bus, 533MHz FSB on a MoBo of MSI Gamila/Glovani/Neon 030, chipset i845G Rev. B1, southbridge 82801db (ICH4) and a BIOS of Phoenix version 3.15 date 08/05/2004.

I was wondering if it is possible to change the CPU to a this one
Brand Intel
Series Pentium 4
Model BX80546PG3000E
CPU Socket Type Socket 478
Core Prescott
Multi-Core Single-Core
Name Pentium 4 3.0E
Operating Frequency 3.0GHz
FSB 800MHz
L1 Cache 12KB+16KB
L2 Cache 1MB
Process Type 90 nm
Vista Ready Yes
64 bit Support No
Hyper-Threading Support Yes
Virtualization Technology Support No
Multimedia Instruction MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3
Voltage 1.25-1.525V

Will I get the HT support? Can I get the FSB up to 800? Will it work at the same 2.5GHz?

Thanks for any help.

Probably not. The i845G does not support 800FSB.

Probably not. The i845G does not support 800FSB.

It doesen't; a 3.06G Northwood P4 with 533MHz bus (4x133), without HT is the best you can fit there.
