I don't think there's a viable upgrade for the Socket A's anymore... AMD has already begun killing off Socket 939 which was created after Socket A and is moving on to AM2... I would think about getting a new motherboard/processor all together... Maybe in the intel family if you can since they are winning the performance war currently at a fair price too for Core 2 Duos or even Quad Cores. Or it may be time to scrap the entire machine, make it a server or linux machine and build a new one.

Maybe someone else will have better advice, but I really don't think you can upgrade much further on that partciular socket


However, to help you out here if you really want to be stubborn, the fastest Socket A processor out there is the Athlon XP 3200+ (AXDA3200DKV4E). Athlon 3200+ but this will offer minimal benefits and I still do recommend what I wrote first. Hope this helps!
