Hello, I have the dell dimension 2350 and just want it to get me by for a few more months. Can I update the processor from celetron intel 430 - 1.8GHz LGA 775 socket to speed it up some?

You have the wrong cpu or dell model number listed. The original 2350 uses socket 478 400 fsb cpus. The celeron 430 is socket 775. The 2350 can run a p4 400 fsb 2.4, which is listed on pricewatch at starmicro for $22, or the cheaper 2.2 which is $9. It will not run any 533 or 800 fsb p4's, due to the chipset limitations.
