Upgrade Pentium 4 - Page 3

post #21 of 30
Well, you can't really build a laptop ...well you can but its rather complicated...and really not worth the effort over just buying one straight out.

The board claims to support Pentium D's...but you'd likely have to flash the BIOS..and even then it still probably wouldn't be worth the effort. You could likely find one used on the cheap and try it out I guess if you really wanted. I really don't see the point though.

Well PentiumD's are dual core. It would be an improvement, although I don't know if it's worth it.

This probably the best cpu you may be able to use:

Well then im not buying a new laptop till then, and my current setup is not bad... The addition of the n210 and an extra gig of ram REALLY sped things up, you have no idea. And it was ~ $60 upgrade

P-D 940 will work fine. I still run one in an older folding rig. My son plays a few games on it as well.

Check around you would be surprised at what you can find.

Oh I do have an idea, if you're short on RAM..it's the cheapest way to get the biggest performance boost..4 years ago, my prior rig was a Pentium Celeron 2.2ghz with 512mb of ram. Adding another 512mb made a world of difference..although it still sucked

i think yes with a BIOS update. your board seems to have a support for 800MHz fsb. the E5800 is 800MHz bus.

also i had an old mobo that doesn't support the Core 2 Duo E7500. i updated the BIOS and it worked fine.

That Intel board uses some ATI chipset? Odd.

Anyway, unless they added support for the earlier Core 2 range (the 65nm ones) with a later BIOS release and didn't update that list (unlikely, but not unheard of), you're out of luck with "newer" and faster CPUs. You can drop a Pentium D in, but keep in mind it's merely a Pentium 4 with a second real core replacing the Hyper-threading that yours has. It's still nowhere near as fast as a Core 2, which itself is starting to age a bit.

If you can find a good Pentium D cheap enough, I'd say sure, go for it. It's old, but there's nothing wrong with starting small (you seem to have with the GPU and RAM), and it is still an improvement. You'll have two real cores, and as your current CPU has a 533MHz FSB, a bump up to 800MHz FSB will help too.

One thing to watch is that those CPUs really ran warm, so I'm not sure how well what you have will work with it.

As aforementioned...

$36, and supported by your motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116391
