Quick question: I've got a motherboard that used to take a Celeron D 2.53 processor. I need to replace it. I can either go with an exact duplicate or for like, NOTHING extra, I can replace it with a P 4 2.53. The only difference is the transfer cache, which is better on the P 4. Am I going to have problems if I do this, though?

No problem changing it. Check to see if you have the 800 FSB with the P4 installed. Some MB's have to have fsb set in the bios. The celly runs on a 533 bus.

Should be fine. Just make sure they are the same socket.
