well, with that info... I would suggest you download the configuration utility, run it and tell us more about what you have.

The fastest chip which will is compatible with your socket would be the 533MHz Celeron. Faster Celerons (and all Pentium IIIs), although they used the Socket 370 format, changed the pinout slightly. If 533MHz is fast enough (and you can FIND one) then go for it, otherwise you'll need to buy a new motherboard as well.
