Why is it so difficult to find what exact processor(s) are good up grades for the Pentium 4, 1.8 Ghz processor that came with my IBM NetVista 831162U computer. I think there is a 3.06 Ghz processor that is cheap on e-bay if itwill work. Help?

Honestly with that system....just buy a new build. Your build is quite old and that an upgrade will offer little performance gains and that processors for that system will be hard to find and overpriced. If determined to keep the computer then let me know, I'll go look for some processors but it wont be the best way to spend your money.
I have seen some Pentium 4, 3.06 Ghz processors on E-Bay very cheap. That is the only reason I would consider an upgrade to this old machine. Maybe the processor for this dude is too costly to mess with, but If I knew the exact processor, I could at least see if it's feasble. Thanks for responding.
