That processor won't fit into that motherboard since the socket is different.

Well the fasted socket a proc I think is the Athlon XP 3400+ but Im not sure. Its not very hard to replace the processor. Remove the hsf, pop out the processor put the new one in, apply thermal paste (I think the athlon xp's all have thermal pads but Im not sure), instal the hsf, plug it in, and start.

I think but I might be wrong. I dont even know if the 3400 exists. If not then the 3200 is
