    ok i have an intel celeron proccesor 64mb RAM 400 mhz speed SiS 6326 display card.
    is it possible that i can upgrade it into an intel pentium 4 proccesor?, with adding 20.4 GB into my comp making it into 1.5 or 2.0 Ghz.
    I don't know if my motherboard is compatibble with it, upgrading my intel celeron comp into an intel pentium 4 proccesor.
    Im not that bright with computers and i need suggestions if i can do that.
    My dad doesn't want to buy a new comp, he just wants to upgrade the hard drive, the speed, the video card, intel celeron into intel pentium 4 processer and add a burner because we already have the printer, monitor, speakers and stuff.
    well is it possible?

    thnx to any response.

    No, you can't upgrade to a Pentium 4. You would have to buy a new motherboard. By the time you buy all that stuff you could have a new computer with a good warranty and new software. You would also avoid the headaches of trying to configure the hardware yourself. Dell usually has great deals.

    I agree but one other solution is to try a local "Mom & Pop" computer store. They may give you some credit on trade ins of some of your older equipment as sometimes they have people coming in looking for a "starter" computer and what you have could be useful. They will be especially more considerate when you don't want to buy a monitor and everything else like Dell can be.
