upgradeing a dell e510 - Page 5

Don't mind kpo's attitude. He's always kind of Mr. Negative and straight to the point. You get used to him eventually and take his demeanor with a grain of salt. Truth be told, he actually has provided tons of useful information on here. But he rarely helps anyone out without making them feel like a complete idiot for asking. But hey, that's his journey.

Much love, kpo!

If I came across as such that was not my intention.

I know you didn't intend to come across that way. I've seen something of a trend in your posts though that lean in that direction. I certainly didn't mean it as an insult. I know people like that and they're some of my favorite people, because they don't hold back and tell it like it is. At least I know I can always count on the truth from them. But to people that don't know them like I do, they can sometimes rub the wrong way. But you are much help, and I was wanting the OP to know that you were only trying to help and your advice did have some significant value.

dont worry everybody has a right to there opinion and i got some good advice from all thanks everyone for your input it did hell in some ways i just wanted to see if i can find out if this mobo will support the c2d or quqad with the latest bios and chipset upgrades but it seems that a pen D is all it will support which i kind of figured and i am ok with that if i can get a pen D 3.8 in here that would be great because i dont do any gaming i wish there was a way to oc but its a dell.

How about buying an 8800GT for $70AR...?

The 8800GT only consumes 30W over the 8600GTS (source), and your 305W PSU should theoretically be able to handle the load. Worst case scenario, if it doesn't work, you can always return the video card and pay a mere $15 restocking fee, or just sell it in the forums. Worth the risk IMHO...

Your best bet would be to upgrade your video card and then carry it over to a new system. The only ones you can oc are XPS 720, 730, and the 630 I think.

i can get a xps gen 2 system are you saying that it can be overclocked i dont think its possible 478 socket would you say that a xps gen2 is has a better mobo than e510 does and its more upgradeable.
