Dell xps upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Before I get started I just wanna say this is for the family PC. That my dad uses and is slowing down. It has a Pentium d 2.8 ghz processor ....I wanna upgrade it but don't know if a older c2d would work in the dell mobo. Any ideas?

Edit: or even a e2150 or 2180

If the motherboard is a standard atx board and not a dell spefic board it may be easier to just replace the mobo and cpu you could pick up nice 775 stuff in the marketplace for cheap!

what he said...
more often than not, it's probably more feasable to purchas/build an updated system than trying to upgrade oem products.... ran into the same situation trying to upgrade my old gateway... hd's and dvd drives were no problem but anything that had to do with the mb always failed and I was stuck with original equipment
