First time poster! :)

I want to upgrade my processor! But Im iffy about the compatibility with the current Motherboard I have!

I currently have a 2.8 Celeron D and wanna upgrade with a
Update Intel Pentium 4 3.0E Prescott 800MHz FSB Socket 478 Processor (click here)

My motherboard is a Foxcon SiSF661GX
I have 1g of RAM which Im upgrading as well.

click here= you will need to find more info on the chipset to determine which board you have, one of the 661s that I looked at will only take up to a 2.8gig pentium 4, it depends which board you have.

Can't find it on there..

But I do know that its a F661GX + 964L
I'm happy to say I know about a decent percentage in PC's!!!

SiS read my mother board like this!

I dunno, but maybe that might help someone help me! AHA!

I think this is it click here first possability click here;br>Also%20known%20as%20661FXME-ES second one click here and providing I have the right board this is what it will take click here it mentions PSC FSB 800 which I presume is the Prescott and will take up to the 3.4ghz

The old memory probably may be too slow by the way if you're going to use that as well as the new RAM you're buying.

If you confirm the links I gave you are definatly the motherboard you have then yes it will support the processor. Regarding the memory I use Crucial now click here wasted too much time with bad memory. I suggest you visit them for what your board supports, can't advise any more as I'm an AMD processor man myself and don't know too much about Intel but I'm sure someone else will help. Run the Crucial Scanner on the website, it should confirm your motherboard but remember the Pentium 4 will use faster memory than your Celeron did. Also have to say I'm not sure how much faster it will actualy be. Good luck.
