Im going to get a new processor for my dads old computer, its a socket 478 board.
Its now got a Intel Celeron 1.70 Ghz processor, and im thinking of getting either a 3.0Ghz Celeron or a 2.4 Pentium.
My question, which is better? Obviosly the Pentium is a better model, but the Celeron has a higher clock speed?

Firstly make sure that the motherboard can take those CPU's at those clock speeds.

Ive run Belarc advisor on my PC and it says that my motherboard is a SIS-651. So I googled it and every picture I found, it looked nothing like the motherboard I've got. =-/

GuZ><0r, how do I find that out?

Look on the motherboard its either arround the edge or between the pci slots.

I found out that the frequency for my motherboard is:

Intel Pentium 4 = 2.8GHz (533MHz)
Intel Pentium 4 Celeron = 2.0GHz

So that means that a Intel Pentium 4 (Prescott) 2.4GHz 533FSB Socket 478, would work?
