you will find far more improvement by increasing the ram from 256mb than changing the processor. I suggest you either look in your manual or go to the compaq site to look at the specifications of your pc and see what its system can accept.

Memory is definitely the way to go but use the Crucial scanner to give you some alternatives and prices. click here

memory is best but a close second is a

3.06 GHz Pentium 4-HT cpu, your max for the board. Much better than a celeron.

A processor upgrade- is not simply swapping lumps - like memory or drives

Processors and and MoBo's are designed together- there may be elements in the existing MoBo[Socket apart] that would mitigate against this being a successful move.
Moreover even if it were- the operating system would need to be re installed and then Microsoft Police would be on your tail.

Apart from Memory or Hard Drive swapping the best route these days is to spend the money on a new machine.

Extra RAM can make SUCH a difference.
