I think the highest you can go is the 9XX series Pentium D processors, with a BIOS upgrade.

Thanks mate where I was looking at a Pentium D 945 but where would I get a BIOS upgrade from, and would this make much of a difference to the speed of my machine.

Many thanks, Alan.....................

A BIOS update for a DEL computer can only be obtained from DEL. Be very sure you get the correct one.

Upgrades to that old board are a waste of time & money.
