    According to Dell, your processor is either a P4 1.8 or a Celeron 1.7. Is this correct? If so, it should be a socket 478.

    That is a hard question, to answer, as many manufacturers use brand name boards, built to their own specifications. You don't want to upgrade, your CPU, until your sure your warranty is expired. I would contact Dell, and find out the info, from them, so you don't run into trouble, and waste your money, on an upgrade, that won't work, or does damage to your system.
