Any agp video card would work. That means no pci express cards. Just make sure your power supply can take a better video card.

This would be the best Pentium 4 (at least from Newegg) that I think you can get for your computer, 3GHz. I think that you could get a Core Duo T2600 processor, 2.16GHz, but I haven't heard anything good about them; just the Core 2 Duos. Plus, this one's $446, kinda expensive. You can get a T2400, 1.86GHz, for $254, but like I've said, I haven't heard anything about these types of processors. You might want to get some advice from others before deciding. Also, a motherboard upgrade would allow you to get a Core 2 Duo processor, but then you'll probably need all new RAM, so it'll be pretty costly to upgrade.

No, he said that he had an LGA775 processor. So, basically, any of Intel's newest processors would physically fit in his socket, but they may not work. Your best bet is to find a LGA775 CPU with an FSB of 533 MHz, let us see it, and we'll determine whether it will work. You might could use a CPU with an FSB of 800/1066, but I'm not sure it would work without some tinkering that might not even be permitted in a locked BIOS.

Oh, yeah. Sorry, I completely read right over the LGA775 part...I'll pay more attention next time. Disregard my post of suggestions. Again, my bad.
