Default upgrading my pc 2

I'm trying to upgrade my old pc spending few bucks. Now, the books say that I can only upgrade my Dimension L500CX's processor up to 733M, but the guy in Dell told me I can upgrade it up to 1,1M top, for $278 -lots of money for a piece of junk-. You think is true that I can upgrade up to 1.1M without risking what I have? In this case, I've found this one on Ebay for 30$,


Do you think I can give it a try?

These are the specs for my PC
