I think there are some Pentium Ds that are socket 478. You could at least get a faster P4.

Celeron D is just a faster Celeron. I'm not sure about Pentium D, I think it's one of those older dual cores.

Make sure your board can take those, though. If your wanting to play newer games (as in 2 years or newer) you might find that your motherboard just isn't good enough.

haha, we wont flame you
but anyway, i dont think youd be able to get a Pentium D. but you could get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16819116027R
Oh and how much Ram/memory do you have in your comp? The amount you have could be slowing you down also. If you dont know, go to google and type in cpu-z. download it, (you dont have to install it) open it up and it will tell you. come back and let us know how much you have, and we recommend some if needed.
