I also have 1512 in Ram. I want to make my computer Vista Compatible, and it seems i need a better processor, and also i want a faster computer so this works out.

I want the best processor for this motherboard, can you please give me info in which processor works best for me?

I found in
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 Northwood 2.8GHz Socket 478 Processor Model RK80532PE072512 - OEM
Intel Pentium 4 2.4B Northwood 2.4GHz Socket 478 Processor Model RK80532PE056512 - OEM

do you think this 2 processors, will work on my motherboard? or do you suggest a different processor. Also will i experience more performance?

But you should be able to replace any Celeron 478 with a Pentium 478 without a problem. I would be looking at the faster of the 2 and if you want to look up the technical Specs they can be found here

As for making the system Vista compatible that's an entirely different story but as the world and M$ needs Paying Beta Testers you are welcome to try. Just remember to report any problems to M$ so that they can fix their faulty code in further Patches or Services Packs that they release for this version of Windows.
