I've been where you are! I have a, Dell 4600 with a P4 2.6 GHz. (No longer in use) I was trying to make this thing last as long as possible considering the AGP-ATI HD4650 GPU I'd recently stuck in it! I looked high and low and found that there is dual core 478 socket processors! UNFORTUNATELY, they're "mobile" chips for laptops and such. They will not work!! I finally had to break down and go with a new rig. Sorry, but you may find yourself doing the same thing. On the brighter side, everything became "affordable" with the newer machine! RAM, right off that bat!
