You need to know if your board can take a 800 and that your able to change the clock/bus speed. And if you do get a 800 for what is would cost maybe you could look into a new baord? Processor AMD 1ghz is only £35 now and boards as cheap as £60 its worth a look becuse most new boards that take AMD auto bios flash and that updates the board for future processors.

You would have to check that this would run on your motherboard.click here=

Pentium 3 800 CPU/motherboard/heatsink/fan

But as SafeHaven says better to spend your money on a new motherboard & processor.
