Specs: Windows XP Home Edition, Intel Pentium 4 @ 3.00GHz, 4 Gigabytes RAM
I'm thinking about upgrading the processor in a Dell Dimension 8300. I'm wondering what is the best processor that I can put in that is compatible with the computer. The original motherboard that came with the computer is installed. The current processor is a Pentium 4 HT @ 3.00GHz. So is there any better processor I can put in it, like a Core Duo or something. Just wondering.

According to that, looks like the 3.4GHz Extreme Edition (assuming you can still find it). It may not be worth it to pour more money in that machine...

Yeah, it looks like that processor is the best. The thing is I can't afford a new machine, and might as well get an upgrade for the one I have if it can do the tasks I need it to. Anyway, thanks for letting me know.
