The best thing that you could perhaps get is an old 1.4GHz Celeron on the old SKT370 platform if its availible and get a convertor for it. The difference might not be that huge though and really, your better looking at getting a new mobo/CPU setup, if not a new machine.
That's the same board I have. It does serves well and the expandable is 600MHzish...even if it is clocked 133MHZ FSB, it will be clocked to 100MHZ
