Your board supports socket 478, which is only for Pentium 4 and Celeron processors, so sorry, but no.

Does my motherboard support 64 bit processor? –  Little Helper Jul 30 '11 at 20:18
    
Still trying to find out...you may already have a 64-bit capable processor, but not sure what this means 100%: "In 2004, the initial 32-bit x86 instruction set of the Pentium 4 microprocessors was extended by the 64-bit x86-64 set". I think you do, but trying to verify. You have a "Northwood" processor: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_4#Northwood –  KCotreau Jul 30 '11 at 20:25
    
OK, I am pretty sure yours is not currently a 64-bit processor as I thought may be possible: ark.intel.com/products/27495/… I am also pretty sure that if you found one that was on that Wikipedia page, it would work. That said, the cost of that processor probably would not be worth it considering you can get a used 2.1 GHz board and dual-core processor on eBay for only $20 more. They are very cheap. –  KCotreau Jul 30 '11 at 20:30
    
Big Thanks!!!!! –  Little Helper Jul 30 '11 at 20:32
