The largest pentium 4 processor on the market is the 3.4 ghz pentium 4 processor it comes in extreme edition but thats rather pricey. Your motherboard should be able to support it. Your computer will probably support up to 4 gigs of ram.

the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.
You can put the cpu in, its the same socket and the same pin as that one you have now. But you will probably not be able to use the 800Ghz fully since it is the motherboard who sets the buz speed and the cpu you using now haz the speed of 533Ghz.
About the RAM, you can have maximum 2GB of memory on that motherboard, thats all it supports. The momory type you can use is DDR PC2100/PC1600
Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here. This will give you the biggest speed increase.
CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.
Im not sure because Pentium D is quite old but is still an LGA 775 CPU. I have 20% chance that it will work. Why do you want to change to Core 2 Duo anyway? Its not gonna benefit you much except maybe a bit more speed in GHz and a bit more Chache. If you want to you can download CPU-Z to identify your CPU. www.cpuid.com Run the utility and go to the "about" tab and dump to text file (press the button at the bottom) Copy the things to do with the CPU and reply. Then ill have a look.
