Default CPU questions

i have some questions about my CPU, i have a 2.4 p4 850 famliy and i was wondering if a 3.4 ghz could fit in the zif holder thing. im a noob with cpus but not with everything else, it took an hour to figure out out to take off the heatsink! oh and can an AMD fit where the pentium went?

AMD CPU will not be able to go into your Dell, or any motherboard with an Intel.
