Not to talk bad about your system, but upgrading from 1.4ghz to 2.0ghz wouldn't hurt, and now you would want a hard drive that is at least 7200rpm, for the fastest search results, also new RAM, pc 133 is next to the slowest on the market. I hope that this helps your question, Good Luck.

To get a definite idea of what CPU your motherboard supports you would have to open it up and read it from your PCB.

But looking at it your motherboard supports 266 fsb at least - you could upgrade to a XP2400+ (2.0GHz).

If your motherboard supports 333fsb your could upgrade to XP3000+ (2.17GHz).

400fsb support = XP3200+ (2.2GHz) - same as mine
