You can upgrade your CPU, and i bet there are lots and lots of websites out there that could help you. I would start by downloading Everest [in my signature] and finding out what motherboard i have.
So... Download everest, then look at this section of it.
Go to Motherboard > Motherboard > Under Motherboard Properties you will see Motherboard name > from there I will see what motherboard you have on google and tell you what I think the best upgrade would be. Then the other tech people will give their opinion and we will debate. Find the best soultion.
Also you need to tell us what sort of budget you looking at

I'm afraid you upgrade won't be very good because you have an older model of a motherboard. Todays Mobos are socket 775 and AM2 if you are going to upgrade I suggest getting a new mobo and CPU together. Anything you upgrade to will not be any better.
He's right, even if he is on the wrong topic. Your board is a Socket 478, which is quite old. You already have a 2.8Ghz processor so going any higher in my opinion is a waste of money. Technology moves at a rapid pace.
If this we're my machine, I would just buy a new one, it will be more beneficial to you in the long run.
Any specific reason you'd like to upgrade the CPU?
