Most Pentium 4 processors were released on the Socket 478 platform. If you have a Socket 478 motherboard then you cannot upgrade any further. Some pentium 4 processors, along with the Pentium D processors, were released on the LGA 775 platform. If you have a Socket 775 motherboard then you do have a few upgrade options but the age of your computer will make upgrades expensive and hard to find.
