Processor and Memory Compatibility

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me with this. I have an old Dell Optiplex 170L (Service TAG DMZ491J) on which I've just reinstalled windows XP on. I would also like to upgarde the processor on it as at the moment its only a Celeron 2.6. I have done a little research but just need someone elses experienced confirmation.
I have found one of these for sale:http://www.cpu-world.com/sspec/SL/SL7B8.html
I think that will work according to dells web site. http://en.community.dell.com/what-do-i-buy/f/3510/t/18868551.aspx
I also would need a little advice on the memory as I'm sure I'll need to change it. Currently it is running PC2700U-25330 333MHz CL2.5. What would I need to change the memory to?
Thankyou for your assistance
