Um, you'll do better to buy a more modern processor than any Socket 478 processor, because you'll have no upgrade route later on and you'd have to buy everything again at a later date.

The Dell Optiplex GX260 is an old machine, at least five years old, maybe six or seven. It's probably not worth upgrading, you'd do better off to replace the entire system than upgrade it. Any upgrades you do do are going to only add minimal amount of performance.
