Only place you will find one of those is a Computer fair they will be old second hand chips

It is a fact of life that the old chip is only replaceable as a gift from someone's junk box or perhaps by searching Ebay.

Unless the old one is dead and you are sure that it is the CPU that is faulty, and not something else on the motherboard, I would suggest you stay with what you have.

If you search for a "manual" at PCChips website you should be able to see what faster chip your mobo can take. My guess is you are about at top limit now.
