I have an old Asus P4B533-E and I have a Pent 4 1.80 CPU at the momebt, I have jusr been offered a new Celeron 336 (2.86) and I was wondering if it would be faster. It is dirt cheap..

If that is your MB, you won't be using that Celeron D 336 (775 socket) on a 478 socket MB.

ASUS P4B533-E (i845E) Mainboard


As an example, you need to look for something like:

INTEL P2-8-533 PENTIUM 4 2.8GHZ 533MHZ 478PIN 512KB CPU, OEM


* Mfr Part Number: RK80532PE072512
* Process Type: Intel Pentium 4 Processor
* Frequence: 2.80 GHz
* FSB: 533 MHz
* Cache: 512 KB
* Process: 0.13 micron
* Socket: Socket 478

* Package: OEM

That would be what your MB supports.

It would be better to save up and just start on a brand new system build.

Yes Grimmy you're right,

I need a new system however I thought whilst I had this old charmer still purring along doing what I need it to do, I would maybe try and just up the speed or throughput if it was a only a few bucks.

I can't get any more than the 2GB RAM in it but thought maybe a facter CPU might help. As it is an oldie things are getting cheaper for them, for the moment that is anyway.

Thanks again..

My suggestion goes like Grimmy. I would suggest saving up about $500-$700 and build a new system. You can get a Pentium DC, nice P35 mobo, 4GB of DDR2 800 and a nice GPU like the HD3850 or 9600GT and make a killer system and that will stay around $500-$700.

Other than that your best bet is the CPU Grimmy posted if you want a boost in performance.
