I have a Parkard Bell Ixtreme 6052 which currently has: intel celeron 2.6ghz, 768mb RAM and Ati x700 graphics card (AGP 4x)

The full specifications are here click here

The gigabyte support is here click here

I am not completely certain that they are the same motherboard but I would like to upgrade to a celeron D or a pentium 4, in order to make full use of my graphics card to play games like battlefield 2, far cry, fear, ut2007 etc

Also I know that sk478 is now very rare, would anyone like to supply any reliable websites that can supply processors with this type?

Thanks

click here have 478s

However I suspect the x700 will lack to giving you what you want in any of the games you mention. I have the same thing in my laptop and it is quite reasonable on FEAR and others but could be better. The X700s are aging to say the least.
