    question on my cpu pls help

    hey I never really got into the whole overclocking fan temp yadda yadda thing but i would like to know a little info . i got this gateway e series from my job ( no i didnt steal it) anyway it have a intel p4 2.6 in it heres the specs i get from cpuz . please check it out let me know what you can about it cuz alot of this is mumbo jumbo to me. can i do anything with it? is it worth using or junk? ive just never dealt with processors. for the stuff i do on here all i used to have to do it slap in some ram , decent hard drive , dvd rom and go now with all this new stuff i gotta try and step it up a notch but under a budget. i understand im new to the forum so go e.z. on me. any tips on what i can do and how to do it in dummy terms would be appreciated . ive tried reading through the stickys and other poss for a while but realized it would be best to first find out what im working with or if its worth working, before i try to fix somthing and make it explode from looking at it wrong like a goblin tinker toy. thank you in advance .

    It will be fine as an internet machine or a jukebox or a fileserver or something like that. I'm afraid use as a gaming PC or a HD HTPC is not possible, the CPU is just too slow. Being a gateway I doubt that it's possible to overclock.

    Does anyone know of any mods? It's been a while since I worked on Northwoods
