    Upgrade Possibilities for Intel Celeron 566Mhz?


      Hello, I have an old desktop  computer running an Inel Celeron 566Mhz. I wanted to know what I  could upgrade the CPU (model number would be great so I can actually  purchase it) to without changing the motherboard (obviously no dual/quad  core, but what about a 1Ghz CPU)?


      For clarification, I quoted the CPUID  data from the Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility.
