Pentium: I believe up to 500 MHZ
Pentium 2: up to 1 GHZ or a little bit over
Pentium 3: Up to 1.5 GHZ
Pentium 4: Up to 3.0 GHZ or over

It all depends on the socket and motherboard. Also above, I can't verify those speeds, but it's an estimate.

Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Conroe 2.2GHz 2MB L2 LGA 775 Processor Retail

It's pretty good. I rather spend another $50 or so dollars on something like this:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz 4MB L2 LGA 775 Processor

Woooo, you got the last of the Pentium CPU line!! Hmmm, I'm not sure what CPU your motherboard can support, but download a utility software such as CPU-Z:

....to see what your motherboard model is, but looks like it will work with Core 2 Duo CPUs right off the top of my head..
