We are really going to need some more information if you want an accurate answer. Motherboard type, processor, power supply, ram, video card, sound card etc.

Me thinks it's more like 733 MEGA-HERTZ.
But that's just a guess.
You could possibly change out the P-3 chip to a higher speed one, but unless you increase the speed by 50%, you probably won't notice. Best bet is to increase the RAM to 512 megs.
That'll do more for you, and not break the bank.
Just my humble opinion.

I totally agree, since its a Dell Case and probably an intel mobo designed for that specific case it might be hard finding a suitable replacement..... this means you are limited to the the design specifications of that motherboard.

It might not support a processor higher than 1 GHz (roughly the PIII Max)

I am quite confidant the memory will go much farther for you...
