Question Can I upgrade my processor?

On one of my PC's I have a Intel Pentium 4, Can I go to a duel core or would I have to buy a new mother board?

You could upgrade, but not to dual core.

Mobo upgrade would probably not be that expensive, but then again, it all depends on what you want

If I was going to stick with the mother board I have, sorry for that I should have made it more clear.
