What is your mobo?
I would guess that you can't use the processor you linked to though, it has an FSB of 800 and you said your mobo only does up to 533.
yea but couldnt i turb back the cpu to 533
Your P4 would be underperfroming and that would be sorta a waste to upgrade. You could look for the 533MHz P4 processor if it still exists in the market. BTW is your motherboard a socket 478 or the LGA etc?
socket 478. kinda outdated too, has no agp or pcie slot x_x ended up buying a 100 dollar PCI graphics card
Yeah, I agree, you really should concider a full system upgrade, you can get a lot more preformance off a basic duel core system.
