If the motherboard you have installed accepts a socket 370 processor and you replaced the board, it would also have to be a socket 370 unless you were planning on upgrading the processor also. If you wanted to keep your existing computer case and other hardware, you might want to look for an inexpensive pentium 4 motherbard and processor to replace it instead of the pentium 3 you now have. If you get a new board that uses the same memory that you now have installed it would be a relatively inexpensive upgrade.

No, u can't. ur motherboard is designed for pentium III processors with FSB -133 MHz, Socket-370 type. Pentium 4 processors have 400 MHz FSB, 423 Socket at least. But yes for memory, u can upgrade it to 512 MB.
Given that you have "Slot 1" sockets, you're already using "fast" 933Mhz CPUs -- you could possibly find a pair of 1000Mhz CPUs, or a pair of "slotket" adapters (Slot 1 on one edge, Socket 370 on one side) and connect a 1100 Mhz Socket 370 CPU to each slotket adapter.
That's a lot of money & work (if you can find the parts) to get a small "boost" from 933 Mhz to 1000 Mhz or to 1100 Mhz.
You might be better-off to add more RAM to your computer, or to buy a brand-new "twice-as-fast" computer.
Here are the specs. to this motherboard
Intel 810E Chipset, Socket 370, Compatible Processors: Intel Pentium III
Intel Pentium III
Max supported CPUs qty
Number of Memory Slots
2 x DIMMs
Audio / Video
Video Out Ports
15 Pin D-Sub VGA port x 1
Desktopso to your queston... Yes it supports Intel PIII have fun >.<
when looking for a cpu for the socket 370, be sure to NOT get the socket 370 cpu that is made for servers.
this type requires a motherboard made specifically for that type cpu.
use a search engine to find out how to tell if it is a socket 370 server CPU, there is not enough space here for me to explain it. in that search you will also find out how to determine the answer to your question about cpu's supported by that motherboard..
most socket 370 based systems run pretty well, so you have a good machine there, and it's worth your time to keep it running, and to upgrade it.
Upgrading to a PIII to a PIV usually requires a new motherboard. Especially with that kind of speed you want to go to. The processor uses a different socket set and requires a different motherboard to absorb twice as much heat as you are putting out of the computer right now (the faster the processor, the more heat is released). Power supply should be around 400 watts as well because you will be needing a different cooling system as well.
go to Dell.com and select suport an download.
enter the model number and the serial number or service tag (rear of the machine).
you should be able to get the original configuration of the machine. Provided that nothing has changed since it left the factory.
