Depends on what motherboard you have - get something in the line of Athlon 3000+ or thereabouts.

Do you know if the motherboard is socket 754 or 939?

SIW will id your hardware so if you post back you will get a suggestion.

on the foxconn website under mobo ref 760GXK8MC-ERS/-RS it lists among other cpu's AMD Athlon 64 2800+..3700+. A 3700+ should be a bit faster than the P4.
