If you download and install this program it will give all the details of your PC,you will then be able to identify make of motherboard which will give us a clue to which P4 you have 423 or 478 pin

Hi, Personally I would stick with the 1.7 P4. You could put a 2.5 in and you wouldn't see any difference in performance. Cheers, Bill
