Question Processor problems
OK so heres my problem I have a few questions regarding processors and how to change them.

#1 would it be worth it to change my intel pentium 2.2 ghz dual processor for a 2.9ghz intel celeron processor?

#2 would it even be possible on my motherboard? (i have the acer M1640 motherbord)

#3 If it is possible how would it be done?

It depend on your motherboard. It may me support 2.9ghz intel celeron processor or may be not.

The only Celeron models running at 2,9 Ghz are the Celeron D 340 and 341. These are really low end processors and swapping a Pentium chip for one of those (if it's possible ofc) is more of a downgrade than an upgrade.

In other words, don't bother. Keep your current CPU, it's faster than any Celeron (I guess it's a Pentium Dual Core since none of the Pentium Ds had a clock speed of 2.2 Ghz). Clock speed doesn't matter when comparing processors of different generations. Your processor has a lower clock speed but it's more efficient and it has two cores, that alone will boost performance on most computing scenarios.

If you want to find the exact specs of your processor and motherboard, download CPU-Z:
