    Download and run Belarc Advisor. It will tell you everything about your PC, your motherboards model, how much RAM you have, etc. That way you can tell us what motherboard you have.

    Maybe a mainboard+cpu combo-dealy? (Is your computer a Packardbell or NEC?) This says that a Athlon XP2000+ @ 266 MHz will fit in there nicely if a new MB is out of the question

    Just make sure you have the latest Bios update so that the board will recognize/supprt the cpu. According to the page provided by KANADIANborn, you're gonna need it.
