I have recently bought a pc package system with a celeron 2.5ghz sitting on a i845 board. is it possible to upgrade the chip to a P4 and if so is there a limit to what speed I can go with this particular chipset?

many thanks

You need to tell us what the FSB speed is before we can answer that.

Well it's almost certainly possible, but the max bus speed of the motherboard may limit your choices.

I believe the 845 chipset limits you to a 533mhz FSB P4, and I'm unsure if the 3.06 w/ HT will work or not.

Yeah, I'm not sure about the -GE but I have the 845PE motherboard in my P4 computer and I know that it will support up to the 3.06ghz P4 Northwood on the 533mhz FSB.
