    Thanks for the initial help with my upgrading my processor question.
    Now that I know I can update my Dell Dimension 4400 to a 2.4Ghz
    processor how do I find the right one that will fit and be compatible
    with the motherboard, etc.? I've currently got a 1.60 gigahertz Intel
    Pentium 4
    8 kilobyte primary memory cache
    256 kilobyte secondary memory

    Board: Intel Corporation D845PT AAA67834-304
    Serial Number: MY01K5291246522J0106
    Bus Clock: 100 megahertz
    BIOS: Intel Corp. A03 01/08/2002

    Can I just get any Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or are there different sockets and
    other specifications that I have to take into consideration? Thanks
    again for any help.

    You can't. The maximum CPU speed the D845PT motherboard can handle is
    2.0 GHz. On the flip side, the 2.0 GHz processor is still plenty if
    you're not into gaming, and have plenty of RAM.
