Your best bet could be to purchase a Motherboard/CPU/Memory bundle -this you will know will work- subject to a reformat[XP will need to be re installed]
Stuff moves on so fast that a motherboard for your processor way not be available- and goes thn never ending loop of buying new bits to match older bits

hi, is there any particular type that i need ?

Assuming your machine is standard ATX size one that suits your pocket.
If your are going for the bundle that is
or if you still wish to try to use exist CPU one that matches but IMHO not really worth the hassle - far batter to go for the matched set.
Take a look at the site and browse
You will by the way also most certainly have to up the Power Supply
So you see 'incremental' upgrading is not really work a candle
Look at the site and others for bare box systems
