    YE u most prob could just find out what motherboad u have and then u can find out
    the max cpu u can install..ur ram(random access memory)should b fine thou

    Or u could overclock it

    Edit:
    More ram would probably be the easiest way to get some speed improvement out of your puter. If u know what motherboard u have or have the manual, check out the fastest processor it can handle and how much ram it can handle. Maybe post back with either the motherboard type or its max FSB, CPU and Ram settings/capabilities and people may be able to give u a better idea. Theres also some programs (someone posted one in the 'new processor' topic) which can tell u what kind of ram and stuff u have so that can get a better idea of what kind (and therefore cost) u need.
