Changing processor from Celeron to Pentium 4

  edgar 17:42 01 Mar 2004

I currently have a 1.8ghz Celeron processor with 400mhz bus with an integrated 256k L2 cache ?? can I change it to a Pentium 4 processor?? What do I need to look for when purchasing a P4? I notice there are several types ie 533 bus 800 bus. Do I have to look for a 400bus?
Any advice would be most welcome for this new comer!

more than likely you will need to get a P4 400mhz chip.your motherboard manual will tell you what your board supports.

you should be able to get one from an online shop no problem but i doubt you will find any on the high street,i cant anyway.but you may be able to order one.

just in case you think im nuts i do know you are talking about the 400mhz FSB and not the speed of the cpu itself :-)
