The 2.8 Pent P4 478 socket is a good processor, probably has dual threading technology, but it has been discontinued and you have to find a compatable motherboard with the features you want to be able to use.
There aren't that many still left available with hi line features. Depending on what you want it to do, you may have to search far and wide.
For instance, you will have to find one that is compatable with the RAM you have, and the graphics card. If you want to use the dual threading capability you need one that will be compatable and have enough ram slots. If you want SATA, the motherboard and bios must have it.
Why did you rebuild the Dell instead of just getting another case with a larger power supply, and more expansion capability which you may well need?
