I bought a dell a few months ago and realize now that the processor is too slow. I want to buy a new processor, but I do not know what I am limited to. I have a Intel Celeron 2.66GHz/533MHz. Does it only matter that the socket be the same, or are there other factors to take into consideration?

Thanks in advance.

I would recommend http://www.PowerLeap.com . I have several Dell GX1 that I have upgraded from P-III 500 to 1.4ghz . It's a plug and play solution.

Checking the specs on that board ya got a real go getter there.
It supports a wide range of processors, clock speeds and FSB.

It should handle that with no problem.
