Yeah, interestingly enough I just tried putting a 2.8Ghz PGA478B Celeron D inside my old Dimension 2400. Won't boot. The 2.4Ghz /512/533 Pentium 4 is one of the fastest CPUs I have for this old rig, and the extra 400Mhz of the Celeron D would really help in older games. I've got some slower Celerons and Pentiums down to 2.2Ghz with abhorrently small cache sizes. Got me an 8400GS 512...unfortunately the 2.4 P4 is a massive bottleneck, as well as the IDE drives. When I run out of the 768MB of RAM on W7 it drops to the HDD cache, and my framerate tanks in Oblivion. Morrowind would probably be easier to run though.
