Hey guys, could u tell me, i have a Pentium 3 733Mhz CPU, if i want to upgrade this to, lets say, P4 or AMD 1.8-2.4Ghz, how would i go about doing this? Do i just buy the new processor from somewhere like simply computers, and put it in somewhere? or do i have to go about taking all the motherboard out and mess about with everything?

Probably your best bet is to buy a new motherboard bundle from, say novatech.co.uk - it will be all assembled and tested and easier for you than putting in a new processor - you will be very limited in what you can use given the age of your current machine.
