Processor Upgrade options?

  Alf58 21:50 04 Feb 2007

I have Microstar MS6533 mainboard and
a Pentium 4: 2.8 GHz processor.

I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade my CPU? Are there any websites that do what the crucial site does for memory upgrades ie scan the computer then tell you what you need?

Why do you feel the need to upgrade?

If you think your PC is slow, Adding more memory may be more beneficial,good housekeeping, optomising, running your PC cooler will all help..

Thanks for the replies folks. Looks like I'll stick with what I've already got.

Why is it that every one keeps puching, fit more memory? the only advantage is that more programs can be run without the computer slowing down. It will not make it Faster, A bigger CPU will make it faster. As will a Faster Hard Drive
