I know this system I am listing is very old, but I cannot afford to build another computer right now. Although, I am willing to see if I will be able to upgrade the CPU to a higher speed. I currently have a SD7-533 Motherboard and a Intel Pentium 4 Willamette running at 1.6GHZ. Could someone please recommend some higher rated processors that would run with this board?

Well Mike,

Go here: http://active-hardware.com/english/reviews...ard/sd7-533.htm

It seems that you need a processor with a 478 socket type.

Here is a good list: http://www.nextag.com/intel-pentium-4-sock...rs/compare-html

Now be careful when installing it on certain Mother-boards, because I had a issue where, I installed a new processor and the O.S. did not like it.
I had to re-enter the product key, SO just a heads up as far as What I had to experience when upgrading a processor. :thumbsup:

Here is the page for your motherboard at Abit's site. It may take some digging to find what you're looking for.
