Hello, I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade my CPU.

Currently have Pentium 4 3.4ghz processor.

CPU

CPU Name: Intel Pentium 4 550
CPU Code Name: Prescott
Platform Name: Socket 775 LGA
CPU Full Name: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.40GHz
Instructions: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, HT
Original Clock: 3400 MHz
Original System Clock: 200 MHz
Original Multiplier: 17.0
CPU Clock : 3392 MHz
System Clock: 199.5 MHz
FSB: 798.0 MHz
L1 Data Cache: 16 KBytes
L2 Cache: 1024 KBytes

Motherboard

Is there any faster processors that are compatible with my equipment? I really can't afford a new computer right now and would just like to upgrade this one.

Thanks for any help! :thumbsup:

I looked into this a little more and it looks like you won't have too many options. You have an older version of the Socket 775 and I was wrong in my first post. I apologize and correct myself.

Adam
