Any 400 MHz processor should work (so the limit would be a 2.6 GHz).
it accepts 533MHz FSB processor also! (we're not talking about GX240 )
not sure about HT-enabled processors though.
sorry to bump this up but since it is a serious decision which could result (if i go ahead with it) in blowing up my pc......................
a mate of mine has offered me a CHEAP Intel Pentium 4 Processor (Northwood) 3.06GHz, 533MHz FSB, Socket 478.....is this all good??
thanks guys really appreciate it

thnaks for the reply......i am going to get it right know ......................yeah baby more power here i come!!
just one thing............ your processor is it HT enabled?
the thing is if my gx260 can handle HT i would'.nt mind getting a HT processor but i do not know how to find out if my system can handle it???!??
Hi, I believe the GX260s shipped after a certain date have motherboards that can enable HT. My GX260 was shipped on 3/31/2003 and it has HT using BIOS a05.
Thanks for the input DHsieh,
mine was shipped august 2002...........hmmm..........................man is there anyway of telling if your gx260 can handle HT without actually buying a HT enabled processor and then discovering later after installation that it is not???
You may want to search the forum for hyperthreading and GX260. I remember seeing a posting that gives the date when the GX260 motherboards are HT-enabled. I think it said early 2003, but I cannot be sure. August 2002 sounds too early.
The GX260's that supported hyperthreading began shipping around Nov '02 so any GX260 purchased after that date should support HT processors. Hyperthreading support was added with bios A05.
that is what i wanted to here.
i did some searching but never knew which caregory i was in....anyway....
BIG thankyou to all you guysfor helping
just installed the p4 3.06 ghz 533 fsb processor, works perfect!!.....but unfiortunately no HT......
however i was thinking that i did not flash my bios with revision a05 and went straight from a03 to a06......should or would this make a difference???
would there be any harm of flashing my bios from what i have now a06 to a05???
thanks guys any help sincerely appreciated
