You have not provided me with any information at all concerning my question, Thanks but I thought this would be easy for an expert.

See, there are many processors , which will physically fit in the socket, but all of them are not supported by the mother board, so I will need few mins, to find out the exact processor, which will fit and supported by your mother board. Sorry for the late reply.

Oh, I see now. Sorry.

Thanks for waiting, I found only one processor, that is 3.2 Ghz, which you can use to upgrade, but I don't think that will increase the performance of the PC, because the bus speed of the 3.2 Ghz will be reduced to 533 mhz from 800 Mhz. In one word, the frequency of the processor will increase, but the main thing which will increase the performance is the bus speed will not increase and if the bus speed of the processor is reduced, then the overall performance will get hamper.

I will not recommend the up gradation, but if you wish then you can do that.

Please reply me back for any other query.
