mmmm... With a 533Mhz Proc??? Forget upgrading... Get a whole new PC. Even if you found what a compatiable upgrade was, and you found a proc, it would be too expensive. Expensive enought that it would make buying a new computer look great. Even the 1.2 Ghz looks pretty grim. What is your budget?

Dude, build a new computer. Plain and simple. I mean, the numbers that your old pc's are putting out aren't worth your frustration doing an upgrade.

Agreed. 533Mhz wont even power Windows 7 let alone any programs. I had a 333Mhz about 8 years ago, and even then it was a really old Dino. I have a Dual Core 3.4Ghz now and its outdated (Pentium D 945). And another thing, even if you find the upgrade and are willing to pay the premium, its not a big upgrade. Prolly not even noticable.

You can build a computer for about 300-400 if you skimp out :) .
