Your motherboard supports Duron or Athlon processors click here. If you're on a tight budget, the Duron is superb value for money. A 1.6G Duron costs about £27 click here, and a heatsink about £6 click here (although this one is on 14 days delivery). You may want a floppy drive at about £6 click here. Also don't forget the memory. If you are going to install Windows XP, you'll need a minimum of 256M DDR memory, and you won't get better than Crucial.
