    hi. I was just curious to which processor i should buy. i have an emachines 1 ghz processor with 384 ram and wanted to know what processor i should up it to to make it better. i ran tuneup utilities and it said to do it. But it said to up it to SSE2 hyperthreading technology and i was wondering which chip i could get, and does the chip have to be another celeron chip? Also is it easy to install once i get it? like plug and play.. i never did it before? Thanks!
    --- also, try to keep the price under 150 for which chip i get, preferably under 100 would be nice though....

    your board can only take upto a p3 1.3gig intel cpu BUT might be possible to go to VIA cpu supposedly 1.6gig but other than that system is dead end

    Your motherboard doesnt support a cpu bigger than 1.3gig, celeron make them faster but your mobo cant take that fast( may be old?). You could get a new mobo and processor for about £150

    duboy1, that was a p4 celeron which uses a different socket478 whereas yours is socket 370. a p4-2.4d celeron is $91Can. & a board is about $64Can. asus p4vp-mx
