I have an IBM netvista 6823 97/u p4 1.4 system. Can I change the processor for better one? If so how big can I go? Do I need to change the motherboard?
Is this something I can do myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have 2 of these machines that my kids use. It would be good if I could max them out. I have order memory to get them up to 1.5 g. They hold 3 x 512.
They already have 250 g hard drives, dvd player, an ati video tuner card .
The recorded tv shows come out terrible. Sound and picture do not match,
hesitates. Will this problem be fixed with the memory maxed to 1.5 g.
Could I change the cpu to make it a little faster when surfing?
