Well, you could always get the "best" chip of the socket... In this case, it looks like the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.4

Though, seeing as the socket is something like 6~14 years old, it may be better to just get a new cheap computer. I'm not even sure if more modern games would even run on your computer, even with the Extreme Edition...
