You might want t5o do a little more research then I did but it looks like you are limited to a CPU with a 533MHz front bus.
Yo be a little more specific you would need a Pentiom 4 CPU up to 2.8GHz.
It must have a 512MB cache & 533MHz bus
the making on the CPU would look like,
[ X= up to 2.8GHz]
That is a NORTWOOD core CPU
Do not get a CPU that has a letter designation like, 2.4A or 2.6A
Or any that has more then 512MB cache.
If it were ne to keep down cost I would look for a 2.4\512\533
