Upgrade CPU compatibility with Motherboard

I have the following motherboard:

With the following CPU:
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.66GHz
Socket 478 mPGA

I want to know which processor I can upgrade to without having to upgrade the motherboard. Can I get a P4 with Hyper Threading?

  1. That's an antique it could be one of several motherboards.That is the chipset.
    Here are some links
    You would be far far better off saving up money for even a low end budget build.
    A very low end budget CPU would blow away that old system in terms of performance.
  2. Hah, thanks.

    I noticed that some P4 were selling for under $50 locally, and figured if I could squeeze any remaining juice from my current machine for that low price, it wouldn't hurt.
  3. It's quite understandible but I don't think that it would be cost effective for an upgrade.Somehow I doubt that a P4 with hyperthreading would work on your motherboard as a guess.
    I saw this deal over at newegg that someone else mentioned before on this forum.


    Only thing it was missing was the hard drive,a DVD burner,CPU heat sink/fan and an operating system.

    As you can see a new budget build would be better.
    Just save up your money and during the meantime study on what you would like to build (come back and give us a budget).
    That old system could still be useful as a secondary PC.
