Changing Dell CPU

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I was thought it wasn't possible to change a Dell CPU, but after reading about another person who was doing it, I thought I might give it a try as well. I still can't find my socket type, I'll attach a CPU-Z pic with this post, and could you guys tell me what socket type and the best CPU to replace mine with? Thanks for the help!!

How would a 1.73 Dothan perform? Compared to a 3.2E Prescott?

edit\\\\ n/m, I just read the rest of your comment apollouser, would I even be able to take full advantage of the 800 FBS? I'm now looking at the 2.8E, but I don't want to spend money on performance I don't get if my system bottlenecks.
