  1. well, that will depend on what socket motherboard you have and what you do,

    If you have a 478 socket motherboard, well just like me, you'll have to do an entire computer upgrade.

    If you have a LGA 775 motherboard, we will need to know what motherboard it is. Just so that if your motherboard would support a core 2 duo/quad.

    Also what are you planing to do? web, word, gaming, rendering, ect.
  2. From what you say it sounds like a new computer

    Specs below:

    Form factor Micro ATX
    Processor socket type 478
    Processor front side bus frequency 400/533/800 MHz
    Maximum approved processor Intel Pentium 4 HT

    Chipset "North Bridge" SiS661fx
    Chipset "South Bridge" SiS964
    Memory type PC2700/PC3200 DDR
    Memory sockets 2 DDR DIMM (184-pin) sockets
    Maximum memory 1 GB (2 x 512 MB DDR-DIMMS

    Use it mainly for WEB, Office and general home use.
