processor help


Recommended Posts

Hi. Its my first post, so not sure if it in the right place....


I`m looking at getting a more powerful processor for my Packard Bell PC and have been told I need to check whether its a "prescot" type , or a "northwood" type. At present i have a 2Gb processor and have seen a few 2.8 and 3.0 on Ebay but not sure of my type to match it up. What I do know is that I have a 478 pin type and its a pentium 4. Does this mean that all pentium 4 , 478 pin processors will fit or do I have to check northwood -prescot . If I need to check, how do I check what I`ve got, to what I need to get, if you know what I mean.


many thanks in advance
